Non-Performing Ministers ‘ll be Sacked, Tinubu Warns

President Bola Tinubu has warned that ministers who do not deliver on their assignments and set targets will be sent packing from the federal cabinet.

Tinubu spoke on Wednesday at the opening of a 3-day cabinet retreat for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries, and top government functionaries.

The retreat with the theme: ‘Delivering on the renewed hope agenda’ held at the State House Conference Centre, Presidential Villa, Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city.

Tinubu noted that it was important for ministries and other agencies to collaborate effectively in order to achieve results and reaffirmed his confidence in the democratic process.

The president added that while he would remove the obstacles stunting the country’s economic growth, the performance of his cabinet would be evaluated, and accountability upheld.

“We can’t complain and give excuses. It is our country,” he said.

“We have to give hope to the near hopeless, to the Nigerians in doubt whether our economic policies are the right way to success.”

Tinubu announced that Bala Usman would oversee the “results delivery unit”.
