Tinubu’s Female Ministers Dress Like They Are Going For Beauty Competition – Adebayo Shittu

A former minister of communications, Adebayo Shittu has claimed that some of the female ministers in President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet dress like beauty pageant contestants.

Shittu stated this during an appearance on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

Truetells recalls that President Tinubu, while speaking at a three-day retreat for ministers and presidential aides on Wednesday, had warned that ministers who do not deliver on their assignments and set targets will be sent packing from the federal cabinet.

When asked his opinion on the president’s warning, Shittu said, “I’m happy that President Tinubu appointed a number of female ministers but my impression whenever I see them on television is as if they are going to beauty competitions based on the type of dresses they wear.”

The former minister asserted that it is imperative for all ministers to show that they take the business of governance seriously.

I think there is need for us (APC) as a government to show more seriousness in the assignments that we have in this government,” he said.

Shittu who served as the minister of communications under former President Muhammadu Buhari from 2015 to 2019, also compared the leadership styles of his former boss and Tinubu.

He said Buhari did not issue threats of sack to his ministers, adding that the former president did not supervise his appointees.

Shittu said the warning Tinubu issued to his appointees during the retreat would make them sit up.

The former minister said Tinubu’s warning to the ministers shows that he intends to do things differently.
