    “Let President Buhari choose a lean, hungry team of high quality professionals and technocrats from whatever ethnicity. Then let him and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo develop a score card for measuring their performance. Let them ensure that anyone who fails to meet the standards set is fired through a bi-annual performance review mechanism. Let the reason for their firing be made known publicly and then let’s see if ministers won’t improve their performance dramatically, leading to a revival of our nose diving national economy. Just saying…” This summarizes our to do’s regarding those appointed.
