Trending: Nigerian Youths demand for more Ministers sack

As if the sack of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mohammed Nanono and the Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman was an eye opener, the Nigerian Youths have called for the sack of more Ministers with similar perceived mal-administration.

The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Mohammadu Buhari had lately sacked the duo because they failed evaluation test conducted by a delegated authority of the Federal government.

It was disclosed that more members of the Federal Executive Council will go at the end of another target evaluation that may be conducted in September or October, as captured in The Punch, 2nd September, 2021.

Several agitation across the Social Media has called for the sack of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk, and the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare.

According to the social Media agitation, the call for the sack of Sunday Dare is connected to the perceived poor implementation of the N75 Billion Nigeria Youth Investment Fund which was designed to dish out loans to thousands of youths, to enable them run their businesses and create jobs in the country.

"In about 1 year of initiating the Nigeria Youth Investment Fund, only a handful of 5,200 youths have benefited from the Loan Scheme while the application of thousands of youths have remained unprocessed," the circulating message emphasised.

There is indication that the call for his sack is not only in the social media but has involved a direct communication to the Federal Government.

The call for the sack of Humanitarian Affairs Minister, Sadiya Umar Farouk according to a circulating media message and Sahara Reporters is connected to the disengagement of 500,000 Batch A and B N-power Youths amids COVID-19 Pandemic, and the denial of the proposed NEXIT Loan planned for the disengaged Youths. 

Also is the refutation of the backlogs of up to 3 months, owed to about 14,000 of the exited N-power Beneficiaries.

The Sack of Nanono may be linked to the delayed FMARD/PACE AFJP Fertilizer subsidy Grant and the complaint by the Enumerators over payment of their Remuneration.
