Nyesom Wike, David Umahi and other newly inaugurated ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have a big responsibility on their shoulders, not to only meet the expectations of the people but that of the president.

In all, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has set clear goals for each sector in the country and will not tolerate failure from either of his recently inaugurated ministers, presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale disclosed on Monday, August 28.

The presidency noted that the former Lagos state governor, will not hesitate to fire any minister who underperforms in the ministry assigned, adding that failure on the minister's part is a failure on Tinubu's part.

According to Ngelale, the president set up “a series of reform committees across all the sectors” between his February 25 presidential election victory and inauguration on Monday, May 29, 2023.

“The President has set the benchmarks,” the senior adviser to the president on media and publicity noted on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

“[Tinubu] basically looked at exactly what His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved and said, ‘This is what we want to do to build on all these achievements,” Ngelale explained.
