I’m Shocked Buhari Deny Me A Second Chance To Serve As Minister – Shittu

Adebayo Shittu, former minister of communication

Adebayo Shittu, former minister of communication, has expressed shock that President Muhammadu Buhari did not reappoint him.

Shittu, who made the disclosure in an interview with NAN, said although he did not expect it, he took it as his fate.

Majority of the 14 ministers reappointed by the president retained their portfolios.

“Of course, I expected that I will be reappointed (as a minister) 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.

“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.

“So for me, it says we must accept that there is always something better with God which he gives to his beloved.

“I see myself as a beloved of God. I have come a long way and I have served at the state and national levels and the experience that I have garnered over the last three and half years cannot be purchased from the stores or from the market.”

He said as a public officer, one must always have it in one’s mind that “whatever has a beginning will necessarily have an end.”

“And it is not how long one stays in public office but how well you are able to distinguish yourself,” he said.
