President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday relieved two of his Ministers of their duties with immediate effect and also announced their replacement.

The affected cabinet members are the Minister of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono, and the Minister of Power, Mr. Saleh Mamman.

The President also directed the Minister of Environment, Mohammed Abubakar, to take over the Ministry of Agriculture while the Minister of State for Works,  Mr. Abubakar Aliyu, has been deployed to the Ministry of Power.

The development was confirmed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

According to the presidential spokesperson, the continuous rejig of the cabinet should be expected until the desired objective is met.

This means the appointment of more cabinet members may still be terminated in the coming days or their portfolios changed.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has warned various Nigerian leaders against making comments that are capable of setting the country on fire.

Naija News reports that the government was reacting to comments made by Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State against the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The governor had alleged that he has proof that the Fulani speaking people are planning to take over Nigeria in a similar way the Taliban took over Afghanistan recently.

But in an interview with reporters on Wednesday in Sal Island, Cape Verde, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, asked political, religious leaders, and opinion moulders to watch their utterances when speaking in public.

The minister also cautioned the media to abide by broadcast codes and other regulations guiding them and not allow words like genocide and ethnic cleansing on the air.
