President Muhammadu Buhari seems to be driving his reforms very fast as reports have emerged that he has ordered the mass retirement of 17 Permanent Secretaries in the Federal Civil Service, Channels TV is reporting.
Although no reason has been given for the decision, a very close associate of the President told Channels Television on Tuesday afternoon that the retirement takes immediate effect.
This is coming barely 24 hours after the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was fired and replaced by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ibrahim Magu.
Over the last months, the Permanent Secretaries had been holding several meetings with the President, an indication that they were giving the President their last briefs.
Analysts see this move as part of the President’s plans to shrink the ministries to cut overhead costs for his government.
