Ministers must meet Nigerians’ expectations, I believe them, says Tinubu


President Bola Tinubu, on Monday, told his newly inaugurated ministers to meet the expectations of Nigerians.

Tinubu said this while charging them at the inauguration ceremony that was held at the Conference Hall in the Presidential Villa.

He added that the ministers were selected based on personal experiences to continue with the work of nation-building noting that the challenges before them could be “very daunting” but that the government was hell-bent on the push to introduce a Renewed Hope.

He said, “It is all about a great team and I believe we have them here.

“The greatest number of Nigerians are highly expectant. They believe that you will serve with integrity and deliver. I will hold you to account,” the President added.

The President urged the new ministers to note that their assignment begins immediately, even as he also urged them to restore faith in governance so that the governed could believe in government.

“I welcome you to the administration of Renewed Hope. We are in this boat (together); this is a vehicle and I am the driver. The entire Nigerians are watching as we navigate this vehicle. We have to do the job to meet the expectations of all Nigerians,” he maintained.

The event was witnessed by Senate President Godswill Akpabio; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, among other dignitaries.
