“Tinubu to Ministers: Deliver Results or Step Down—No Exceptions”


In honor of his first year in office, President Bola Tinubu has instructed his 47 ministers to present their performance scorecards to the public. The announcement, made by Minister of Information and National Orientation Mohammed Idris, outlined a series of sectoral media briefings starting today.

At a press briefing in Abuja, Idris was joined by Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, and Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Abubakar Bagudu. The briefings will highlight the administration’s achievements and ongoing efforts to address Nigeria’s economic challenges.

Tinubu, declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election with 8.7 million votes, has emphasized performance and accountability within his cabinet. At a cabinet retreat in November, he stressed that ministers would be evaluated quarterly and retained based on their performance.

The Central Delivery Coordination Unit (CDCU), led by Hadiza Bala-Usman, has been tasked with assessing ministerial performance. According to Bala-Usman, the CDCU has received performance reports from 20 of the 35 ministries for the first quarter of 2024. The assessments incorporate inputs from citizens and industry experts.

The Tinubu administration has implemented significant economic reforms, including ending the fuel subsidy regime, allocating substantial funds to agriculture, and supporting small and medium-sized enterprises. Infrastructure development, such as a 100,000 renewable housing program and investments in irrigation for year-round farming, has also been prioritized.

Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Abubakar Bagudu, highlighted the administration’s efforts to restore fiscal discipline, increase capital expenditure, and boost national security. He emphasized that the administration’s policies, while sometimes causing temporary discomfort, are aimed at long-term stability and growth.

The government has also focused on enhancing energy efficiency, supporting local manufacturing, and improving access to education through a new student loan scheme.

As the Tinubu administration marks its first anniversary, these sectoral briefings will provide a comprehensive overview of the progress made and the challenges ahead in achieving economic revitalization and sustainable development for Nigeria.
