NewsWireNGR had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari for the first time during his tenure sacked ministers.
The two ministers axed in the recent shake-up were the minister of power, Saleh Mamman; and the minister of agriculture and rural development, Sabo Nanono.

Lyrical Legendd: Oga Engr. Sale Mamman As A Matter Of Fact from my heart, I’ll like to tell you that you loot our generation from your own heart….
You were given an opportunity you employed more than a hundred advisers without meeting up to their demands.
Your own state (Taraba) is still suffering from lack of electricity while you have the power to solve their needs.
So now you want us to be sad because you were sacked???
I’m Happy sir, give others that Opportunity to utilize since you can’t figure out what it takes…
Yunusa Hassan Sabo: What goes around comes around. You had all the opportunity at your disposal to transform Taraba State more importantly Taraba central zone by connecting it to the National grid, but wasted this golden chance. I was so happy when you were appointed a minister of power anticipating better days ahead for our already marginalized central zone. Unknown to me you would only serve your family and of course, build your governorship ambition.
Posterity will surely judge you.
Ibrahim El Hamisu: Engr.Sale Mamman you deserved thanks from all Nigeria over the services yo rendered during your tenured in office Power Sector has improved really.
I wish all the best in your future endeavor
