Ministers who fail to perform will be dropped – Hadiza Bala-Usman

President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Policy and Coordination, Hadiza Bala Usman, has warned that non-performing ministers will face the axe.

She made this remark on Wednesday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, where she addressed a technical retreat for delivery desk officers of federal ministries.

The retreat was aimed at ensuring the effective implementation of presidential priorities and ministerial deliverables.

Usman, who heads the central coordinating and delivery unit (CDCU), said Tinubu is committed to fulfilling his promises to Nigerians.

She said the desk officers are responsible for monitoring the performance of the ministers and reporting their challenges to the CDCU.

“We must understand that the president is very serious about his promises and that ministers will be assessed, and ministers will be dropped if they don’t perform,” Usman said.

“You must understand that as ministerial delivery desk officers you are the engine room that will provide that feedback and constantly track ministerial progress and report challenges and bottlenecks to the CDCU.”

“As I was saying at the ministry of aviation recently, we will be assessing FAAN on customer experience at the airports; are the escalators, lifts, and conveyor belts functional? How swift is security clearance both for passengers and vehicles in accessing the airport?

“What are the consequences of delayed time of departure for airlines? These are things that everybody can feel and see.

“When we are talking about agriculture, we want to see our index of fertilizer use per hectare grow in view of the attendant investment that has been made in fertilizer interventions.”
