Ministers are supposed to complement the president of any country as they are meant to implement the policies of his or her government.
When President Muhammadu Buhari spent six months scouting the whole country looking for competent men and women to appoint as his ministers, Nigerians felt he knew exactly what he was doing and that the people he would finally settle for would be people who will hit the ground running.
But close to two years after they were sworn in, some of these ministers have turned out to be monumental catastrophes, so much that many wonders if they were really the right people for the jobs.
If they are not enmeshed in controversies, they are enacting anti-people policies or making statements that are out of place with the offices they occupy.
