Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris has said President Bola Tinubu’s first anniversary will be a low-key affair.

Idris revealed this information on Wednesday during a ministerial press briefing in Abuja.

He stated that the action is consistent with Tinubu’s goal to serve the nation and effectively utilise its resources for the benefit of all Nigerians.

“The first anniversary will be low key, there will be no celebration; it will be a sectorial presentation by ministries.

“This is in line with Tinubu’s administration to ensure efficient and judicious use of resources to deliver dividends of democracy to citizens.

“The president has directed that useful information should be provided in an honest, timely and consistent manner.

“Members of the media are expected to report honestly, responsibly, and with a deep sense of patriotism. The essence of the media is to inform the people and hold the government accountable.

“Thus, over time, the Ministry of Information and National Orientation finds it worthy to always brief the media and people on what the Federal Government is doing,” he said.

The minister called on media professionals to carry out their duties with a strong sense of duty and patriotism.

Idris reaffirmed that ministers from different ministries would start giving presentations on May 22 as part of the ministerial briefing.
