Adebayo Shittu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s immediate past Minister of Communication, in a statement in Abuja said that he was shocked that the president did not re-appoint him as minister.
The Ex-minister noted that he did not expect he would not be re-appointed.
“Of course, I expected that I will be reappointed but when it didn’t happen, as a Muslim, it didn’t take me five minutes before I accepted that what has come, it’s the will of God,” he said.
“And I have also found comfort in a Quranic verse when God promised that what is to come later is better than what is with you now,” he added.
President Buhari had last week swore-in his 43 Ministers into office and assigned portfolios to them.
