Barely 24 hours after the EFCC boss Ibrahim Lamorde was relieved of his duties President Buhari today fired all the 17 permanent secretaries in the federal civil service and this, reports say, takes immediate effect. 

No reason was given for this action, but  sources revealed that it is part of the president's move to carry out sweeping reforms.

Shrinking the ministries to cut overhead  costs for his government,  analysts say,  could be one of the reasons.
