Tinubu will sack underperforming ministers — Presidency

Hadiza Bala Usman, President Bola Tinubu's Special Adviser on Policy Coordination, has warned that ministers who fail to discharge their jobs would be sacked by the president. 

According to Usman, Tinubu is ready to fulfil his pledge of making Nigerians' lives better and simpler.

The presidential assistant gave the warning at the start of a technical retreat for federal ministry delivery desk officials on the implementation of presidential objectives and ministerial deliverables in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom state.

Usman urged the delivery officers and directors of planning in ministries who attended the event to take their work seriously.

She said: “We must understand that the president is very serious about his promises and that ministers will be assessed, and ministers will be dropped if they don’t perform.

“You must understand that as ministerial delivery desk officers you are the engine room that will provide that feedback and constantly track ministerial progress and report challenges and bottlenecks to the central coordinating and delivery unit. 

"As I was saying at the Ministry of Aviation recently, we will be assessing FAAN on customer experience at the airports; are the escalators, lifts, and conveyor belts functional?

“What are the consequences of delayed time of departure for airlines? These are things that everybody can feel and see.

“When we are talking about agriculture, we want to see our index of fertilizer use per hectare grow in view of the attendant investment that has been made in fertilizer interventions.”

Following their appointment, Usman said that all ministers would sign a performance bond with Tinubu. She stated that the bond will specify what is expected of the ministers in 2024.

According to the presidential adviser, the bond would be used to track each minister's performance in 2024.

Usman further stated that the bond will have key performance indicators (KPIs), which will be assessed quarterly.
