President Bola Tinubu has directed his 47 ministers to present their scorecards to Nigerians from today to mark the first year anniversary of his administration.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris at a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday.

According Idria, the low-key first-anniversary celebration would be marked with sectoral media briefings by the 47 federal ministers starting on Thursday (today).

Idris was joined at Wednesday’s media press conference by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, and the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Abubakar Bagudu.

It will be recalled that Tinubu was declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, on March 1, 2023.

It will also be recalled that at the opening of a three-day cabinet retreat for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries and top government functionaries on November 1, 2023, the President said the ministers in his cabinet would only retain their offices based on performance, which would be reviewed quarterly.

“If you are performing, nothing to fear. If you miss the objective, we’ll review it. If no performance, you leave us. No one is an island and the buck stops on my desk,” said the President.

Speaking on the first anniversary programmes, Idris said there would be no fanfare to mark Tinubu’s one year in power.

He stated; ‘’From tomorrow (today), we are going to have ministers come in here to discuss what they are doing in their various ministries consistent with the policies of President Bola Tinubu.

“The first anniversary of the president will be on a low key, with an emphasis on sectoral briefings by the various ministers. There will be no ceremonies relating to the one year in office of the president.”
