Melanesiatimes.com – Secretary General of the Inter-Tribal Harmony Communication Forum (FK2AS), AC, gave a red report card to the Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Indonesia Syahrul Yasin Limpo.

There are many things that are considered to show Yasin Limpo’s inability to lead the Ministry.

“If I give an assessment for the Ministry of Agriculture, it is red or if it is in that number five, the report card is still red, about the data they don’t have, every coordinated director general is also not good, director general A talks differently, director general B talks differently,” said Achmad Sazali in the JCCNetwork Pro Autonomy Program Podcast, entitled Ramadan Prices of Rice and Basic Food Prices Skyrocketed, Who is the Culprit?

According to Achmad Sazali, Jokowi has worked optimally, both facing the exposure to the health crisis in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic crisis. However, his aides, especially in the agriculture ministry sector, are far from maximized.

For this reason, continued Achmad Sazali, now the right step is for Jokowi to immediately reshuffle Agriculture Minister Yasin Limpo. Because do not let the people assume Jokowi’s good performance so far, become biased or misguided by the performance of his aides who did not go as expected.

“It is time in our opinion that Yasin Limpo is replaced because of his poor performance, the magnitude of the benefits rather than the benefits, it actually adds to Jokowi’s bad image, so the replacement of Yasin Limpo is a necessity and imperative,” concluded Achmad Sazali.
