PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has said that he decided to split the ministry of power, works and housing and ministry of transportation and aviation in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure delivery programs and projects.
While speaking at the first Federal Executive Council, meeting in the second term of his administration, Presidential Villa, Abuja, today President Buhari tasked the cabinet members to work as a team in order to achieve the desired result.
He said that majority of Nigerians who voted for him at the just concluded election gave clear mandate on how to enhance the security of lives and properties, create a diversified and inclusive economy that will bring prosperity to all, and to install governance and accountability in the systems and processes, thereby eliminating corruption.
For returning ministers, he said that his decision to reappoint them was based on merit, adding that he expects them to double their efforts in this second term. He changed the Ministers to work in harmony with each other, stressing that communication and team work are the hallmarks of success.
