I’ll sack non-performing Ministers – President Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has vowed to drop any member of his cabinet whom he feels falls short of the expectations of Nigerians.

 

The President stated this at a meeting with the leadership of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday, May 30.

 

“I thank the cabinet members for their efforts, but I will relieve any of them of their duties anytime I feel that they are failing Nigerians,” he said

 

He also appealed to state governors to prioritize the needs of local communities by ensuring accountability and effectiveness in the administration of local governments.

 

“I will appeal to you to summon the governors. I am doing my very best to enhance the revenue base of the country. They must equally be sympathetic, and they must urgently consider the needs of the local people.

 

People reside in the local communities. That is where they work, farm, and live. If the local governments are not effective in delivering services; as leaders, we must not hang on to the numbers.

 

Maybe we should look at recalibrating. What was good four years ago may not be good today. When we want the votes, we go to the locals; when we get the votes, we move to and focus on Abuja,” he said.

 

On security, President Tinubu commended the National Security Adviser, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, for his efforts, saying: “Everybody wants to be secure, and we need to invest more in technology. We will do it, I promise you. We will put our heart and soul into ensuring that Nigeria is secure and its citizens are protected.
