President Has Set the Benchmarks for Ministers, Aide Reveals

The presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale has said that President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial cabinet has been tasked with what to achieve within a time frame.

He noted this during his appearance on Sunrise Daily, a programme on Channels Television on Monday.

He asserted that President  Tinubu has spent the months since his victory in the election on February 25 outlining precise goals for every sector of the nation and would not put up with any failure from any of his recently appointed ministries.

“The President has set the benchmarks,” the Senior Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity noted.

“The question now is about enforcement and the President has shown, as he did during his time in Lagos State as governor, that he is not afraid to fire anybody. 

“He is not 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.”

Ngelale claims that the President created “a series of reform committees across all the sectors” in the interim time between becoming the president-elect and taking office on May 29.

“[Tinubu] 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.

“We’re going to effectively implement a plan within a certain amount of time based on time-based benchmarks that when a minister has come in, we would be able to measure their performance against.’

“Every minister coming in absolutely knows what they have to achieve within the time frame that’s been given to them by the President and that’s something in the history of Nigerian governance we’ve never seen before.”
