Tinubu challenges ministers and others to leave the government if they are unable to fulfill their duties.

On Wednesday, President Tinubu opened a three-day retreat with the theme, “Delivering on the Renewed Hope Agenda,” for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries, and top government officials at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. He emphasized his commitment to delivering the dividends of democracy to all Nigerians, regardless of political affiliation, and likened the country to one big family with people partitioned into different rooms. At the end of the retreat, a bond of understanding would be signed between the participants and the President, who has given them a free hand to carry out their responsibilities. He advised them to ask questions about how and when to do their jobs and warned that those who do not perform will be reviewed and asked to leave. President Tinubu charged his ministers and other government officials to help him succeed, acknowledging that he may make mistakes but will immediately correct them when pointed out.

It was suggested that the ministers should be viewed as partners for positive contributions to the nation’s growth, rather than opportunistic individuals. Tinubu emphasized the need for focus and determination to deliver results, despite the existing chaos. The president highlighted the significance of quality healthcare and education as effective measures against poverty and assured foreign investors of a hassle-free investment process.
