Power Minister, Saleh Mamman has allegedly collapsed and landed at the hospital yesterday after being sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari, Peoples Gazette reports.

Mr Mamman served as power minister since 2019 until he was fired on Wednesday as Buhari conducted a minor redeployment of his cabinet members. He was fired alongside agric minister Sabo Nanono.

“He collapsed yesterday and was immediately hospitalised,” a family source told The Gazette under anonymity. “He wasn’t expecting to be fired so soon.”

The nature of Mr Mamman’s ailment was not immediately clarified to The Gazette, and his spokesman did not return a request seeking comments when the news outlet contacted him.

The source said Mr Mamman has been quietly receiving treatment at a hospital in Abuja, and The Gazette has withheld the name of the hospital to respect the former minister’s privacy.
