    I don't see anything wrong with the step Governor Ambode had taken. In the first place, he appointed them with an objective in mind, and his expectations are not being met,he's at liberty to axe them. The loud calls at the Federal level to reshuffle the cabinet is certainly not because Nigerians hate any particular ministers but rather that the pace of development be faster than it is currently. Politics outside, these crop of Ministers are not the best Nigeria can parade, both home & in Diaspora. Nigerians clamour for the best to be brought in to assist fix our ailing economy irrespective of party leaning. There's a popular proverb that you must first chase the Fox away before blaming the hen "and what were you seeking in the bush"? In other words, solve the current economic challenges facing us before telling about your party membership. Nigeria has enormous potential, & we want those translated into good life for all. All us must not belong to any of the parties, all we have in common is desire for good life.
