He shared this at his farewell gathering with department heads and ministry officials.

Adamu admitted, “I understood absolutely nothing about education before I was named Minister. Since I was just starting out in my new role as Minister of Education after Buhari’s appointment, I solicited the aid of several colleagues to help me draft a policy statement on education.

I told them about my plan, and they were really supportive; I will be forever grateful to them for all the aid they gave me.

The task of advising the President on potential cabinet members for 2015 kept me quite busy. I was taken aback when he abruptly called out my name. We worked together until next year.

A president working with the same ministers for four years was rare in our society, so I addressed the President in 2019 and advised he reorganize his cabinet.

The ministers had been granted extra four years of service by Buhari’s generosity. The average tenure of a minister is two years before a cabinet reshuffle.
