Adebayo Shittu Adebayo Shittu

Adebayo Shittu, a former Minister of Communications, has said that former President Muhammadu Buhari did not ask his ministers to explain how they run their ministries.

Adebayo Shittu was reacting to the current retreat Tinubu’s ministers are attending during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.

“Buhari did not give anybody any threat. As I said, Buhari is not Tinubu and Tinubu is not Buhari. What I know of Buhari with all due respect to him, he is a more reserved person. When he gives a job to somebody, he will never ask how they go about it.

“I have to say this for national interest so that the government who comes after him should do something about it. In the Buhari government, if you don’t go and meet him, probably in the next four years, he will not ask about you.

“People bring their memos, but in terms of supervision we really did have such things. Tnubu is trying to do things differently.

“In his statement today, Tinubu shows commitment that he is trying to do things differently. What I think he needs to add to it is to lead a transparent and quantifiable supervision of each ministry.”
