Photo Freak Minister: Sacked Nanono Allegedly Spent #1bn to renovate Office

While the country continues to groan under inflation in prices of food stuffs and other essential commodities, sacked Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono allegedly spent 1bn to renovate his office.

The recently furnished office would be best described as a state-of-the-heart studio

Recall that on September 1, 2021, President Muhammadu Buhari announced the sacking of two of his cabinet members.

The affected cabinet members were Saleh Mamman, minister of power, and Sabo Nanono, minister of agriculture and rural development.

Special Adviser to the President on media and publicity, Femi Adesina said the ministers were not removed owing to weak or poor performance but to consolidate on “legacy performance”.

“Matter of fact is that the president said he had reviewed the performance of the cabinet and needed to reinvigorate for the last run. He said he wanted to consolidate on legacy performance and projects,” he said.

“He needed some reinvigoration but he didn’t say anything about weak or poor performance.”

He also noted that the contributions of the two ministers could be considered weak and not in tandem with the goal of his administration.
