Ministers In Panic Mode As President Tinubu Commences Plan To Shuffle Cabinet

Ministers are in panic mode as President Bola Tinubu prepares to reshuffle his cabinet before his first anniversary in office.

May 29, 2024, will mark the first year of President Tinubu in office as Nigeria’s leader, and there are ongoing efforts to rejig the Federal Executive Council.

President Tinubu is set to flag off a three-step approach to assessing his Ministers and heads of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) ahead of his first year in office.

The aim is to provide a platform that will allow members of the public to make inputs about the ministers that will be retained and those that may be asked to go.

Credible sources at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, told BusinessDay on Monday that the President would launch the platform, enabling Nigerians to provide feedback on their assessment of each minister and their performance.

“This will be done at three different levels. First, you have members of the public who can through the platform, get relevant information on the President Bola Tinubu’s targets for each Ministry and through that give feedback on the performance of each Minister based on the targets provided,” the source said.

“The next stage will be evaluation carried out by the Policy Coordination office, and lastly, a group of Consultants will also give their assessments on the Ministers performance.

“So, these will be the basis for determining which Minister stays and those that will leave the cabinet because of poor performance,” the source added.

Bala-Usman had indicated that President Tinubu “will drop ministers who do not deliver on their mandates.
