The statement added that Dr. Mohammad Mahmood Abubakar, Minister of Environment was redeployed to assume office as the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, while Abubakar D. Aliyu, Minister of State, Works and Housing will now be the Minister of Power.

The Nigerian President explained that the changes were sequel to the “tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes implementation to independent and critical self-review” through sector reporting during Cabinet meetings and at retreats.
