Jonathan Sacks Youth Development Minister

President Goodluck Jonathan has terminated the appointment of the minister of youth development,Inuwa Abdulkadir.




    The announcement of the minister’s sack is contained in a statement released to the Media by the secretary to the federal government, Anyim Pius Anyim in Abuja today.


    No reason was given in the statement for the termination of Abdulkadir’s appointment.


    There are, however, speculations that his sack may be related with the political path taken by the Sokoto State Governor, Magatarkada Wamako who recommended his appointment into the federal cabinet.


    It would be recalled that Governor Wamako is among the five governors who have been consulting and have also openly kicked against Jonathan’s second term options.
