The immediate-past Communications Minister Adebayo Shittu has said that his exclusion from President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list was shocking.
Shittu who told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja he did not expect that he would not be reappointed, said as a Muslim.
The 43-member Federal Executive Council (FEC) was inaugurated by the President in Abuja on August 21.
The cabinet is made up of 14 former ministers, 29 new ones and seven females. Eighteen former ministers did not make the list.
He further said that as a public officer, one must always have it in one’s mind that “whatever has a beginning will necessarily have an end.
