President Muhammadu Buhari has threatened to fire more ministers perceived to be lukewarm.

Mr Buhari made the threat on Wednesday while sacking two ministers he immediately replaced.

At the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, the president approved the ousting of Mohammed Nanono, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and Sale Mamman, Minister of Power.

He said the move became necessary to strengthen his cabinet “in a manner that will deepen its capacity to consolidate legacy achievements.”
