President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly finalised plans to fire fifteen of his ministers before the year ends.

Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami, according to Sahara Reporters, is among the ministers whose fate have already been decided.

The news medium which quoted presidential sources said Mr Abubakar who doubles as the Justice Minister, is aware of his planned removal and has began lobbying to be retained.

“President Buhari is planning to sack 15 Ministers with Malami topping the list. Someone gave him the hint and he has started fighting back so bad. He doesn’t want to be sacked,” the source asserted. “Moreover, he is enjoying the support of lots of corrupt politicians, including senior members of the cabal because he is assisting them to sabotage corruption cases.”

This is coming after the recent sack of two ministers whom the president described as lukewarm. He had said the process of easing out the tepid ministers remains on course.
