Tinubu Urges New Ministers To Fulfill Nigerians’ Expectations

Nigerians expect that you will serve with integrity, dignity and deliver. I will hold you to that standard.

President Bola Tinubu on Monday urged the newly appointed ministers to unite their efforts and expertise towards achieving the hopes and goals of the Nigerian people in their governmental roles.

Tinubu delivered this charge during the inauguration ceremony of the 45 ministers-designate who had been confirmed. The event took place on Monday at the Conference Centre of the State House in Abuja.

“We are in this boat, even if it is a vehicle and I am the driver, the entire Nigerians are behind sitting and watching as you and I navigate this vehicle. We must hold each other responsible, we have to do the job to meet the expectations of all Nigerians.

“As I said earlier on, you are not a minister of a particular state, colony, region or ethnic nationality, you are a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” President Tinubu said.

He stressed that a substantial portion of the Nigerian population looks forward with high expectations for their performance.

“With the inauguration of Ministers today, we are about to accelerate our governing efforts to move forward in realizing our best aspiration for Nigeria. It’s all about a great team and I believe we have them here. It is a high honour to be chosen to serve as a minister in the federal executive council of our beloved republic.

“With such high honour comes tremendous responsibility in this moment of abundant promise and peril in equal measure. All of you who have been sworn in have been called to distinguish yourselves.
