New Nigerian cabinet

Acting President Jonathan has named a new cabinet and taken control of the most contentious ministry himself. This sounds like an act of political bravery but we must remember that the power ministry has been one of the most corrupt and the source of incredible wealth for a few people.

Jonathan Takes Over Ministry of Power
No substantive minister of power would be named for the time being following the decision of the Acting President Goodluck Jonathan to take charge of that critical sector.

This comes as the Acting President hinted during the swearing-in ceremony of ministers yesterday that they would sign a performance agreement to help monitor their progress in office…

During the swearing-in of 38 new ministers at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Jonathan stated that they will be expected to deliver on their jobs in addition to being made to sign a performance agreement.

The Acting President said as part of efforts to measure the performance of the ministers, he would in the next two weeks work with them to determine and agree on ministerial goals and targets, which would form the basis for measuring and assessing their performances.
