Why President Goodluck Jonathan sacked Education Minister Ruqayyatu Ahmed Rufa’i

Oops! President Goodluck Jonathan took us by surprise when
he announced the immediate reshuffling of the Executive Council of the
Federation (FEC) this afternoon.

The reshuffling  affected six
ministers and three ministers of State.

The affected Ministers include those for Environment (Hadiza Ibrahim
Mailafa); National Planning, (Shamsudden Usma); Education (Ruqayyatu
Rufa’i);  Science and Technology (Ita Okon Bassey Ewa); Housing and
Urban Development (Ama Pepple) and Foreign Affairs (Olugbenga Ashiru).

Also affected are the Ministers of State for Agriculture, Bukar Tijani Borno; Defence (Olusola Obada) and Power (Zainab Kuchi).

Although details are vague on reasons for this development, there is no doubt that this occurrence is related to the on going Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike which has left so many faces frowning in the country..
I only hope that the so-called reshuffling helps in some way to
resolve the compulsory holiday the federal university students were forced to take.
