PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has faulted critics of the ongoing reorganisation at the presidency saying that the exercise is aimed at enhancing service delivery to Nigerians and not for any other reason.
A statement Saturday by one of the President’s spokesmen, Malam Garba Shehu, stated that the president made the explanations when he entertained questions from State House Correspondents, shortly after his arrival from London, Friday night.
The President had said that, “it is unfortunate that the recent disengagement of some political appointees from the presidency had been given “ethnic and political” interpretations.
“They said 35 people were sacked in the office of the vice president. We just created some ministries and we reorganised and people are giving it ethnic and political dimensions. It is unfortunate.”
Responding to a question on what next for his administration after his rest in London, the President said: ‘‘We are going to work harder and be accountable.
“We have tried to make Nigerians understand why we do certain things. Accountability from bottom to top is absolutely necessary.
“Whoever is responsible for government property, should know that it is public property, it is not personal and he has to manage it according to the law.
“That’s what I expect and I think that we have been around long enough to impress on people that we mean what we say.”
