You can only keep your job when you perform-Tinubu sounds note of warning to Ministers

President Bola Tinubu has vowed to sack any Minister who fails to achieve the mandate of his ministry in line with the set objectives of his administration.

He also said that the Results Delivery Units which would be signed at the end of the retreat will serve as a Bond of Understanding between the ministers, the Permanent Secretaries and himself.

The President stated these in Abuja at the opening of three-day 2023 Cabinet Retreat for Ministers, Presidential Aides, Permanent Secretaries and Top government functionaries, with the theme: “Delivering on the Renewed Hope Agenda.”

He informed the gathering that Hadiza Usman is in charge of the delivery unit saying every member of the cabinet must be ready to work for the sake of millions of the people.

President Tinubu reminded the ministers of their responsibility to serve the people who entrusted their mandate to him.

He reiterated the commitment of his administration to take 50 million Nigerians out of poverty, saying, “Poverty is not a shameful thing, it is only unacceptable. And we have to banish it because it is unacceptable.”

He also enjoined the ministers to focus on the progress of their respective ministries and come up with bold endeavours, stressing that his administration was determined to turn the nation’s population into an asset.

“If you are performing there is nothing to fear. If you missed the objective, we review, if no performance you leave us. No one is an island and the buck stops on my desk.

He assured that the Ministers would have a free hand to work adding they must be intellectually inquisitive to ask how, why, when, and why it must be immediate.

The President said that the country was blessed with great talents around the world, adding that Nigeria was the biggest intellectually sound country in Africa.

”Yes we have challenges in the Sahel, we have challenges of climate change. South and North of Nigeria are battered, we’ve all seen such.

”You have desert encroachment in the north but we are still blessed with arable lands. We can do it, we can build our country.

”It is not about the theoreticians, it is about practical determinations and focus evaluation. Yes, it is our country, we have no other one.

The President, who enjoined ministers and other government officials not to be afraid in taking decisions, however, warned them against being antagonistic to their supervisor.

“If they are wrong debate it. I stand before you and I have clear several occasions and I will be saying today again as the President I can make mistakes.

”Point it to me I will resolve that conflict, that error, perfection is only that of Almighty God, but you are there to help me succeed. Success I must achieve by all means necessary.
