JUST IN: Tinubu ready to fire any Minister – Presidency
Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, has warned that his principal, Bola Tinubu, will not tolerate any iota of poor performance from any of his ministers and will not even hesitate to fire any of them that fails to deliver the mandate to the people.
The presidential spokesman made this known when he featured on Sunrise Daily, a Channels’ Television programme, on Monday.
He said: “President Bola Tinubu is someone who has the results. He says ‘these are your benchmarks, I know what I want you to achieve, I’m not expecting you to just come up with some plan when you get there. I’m telling you the time frame within which I expect you to achieve’.
“The question now is about enforcements and the President has shown, as he did during his time in Lagos State as governor, that he is not someone that is afraid to fire anybody.
“He is not somebody that is afraid to levy quick sanctions to ensure that they get the results that he wants ’cause, ultimately, if this administration fails, they will not say a minister failed or a set of ministers failed. They will say President Bola Tinubu failed, and he will not accept failure.”
“And if you don’t, there are consequences. He’s ready to fire a minister at the drop of a dime if he is not getting what he wants. Absolutely.”
