As he marks his first year in office, President Bola Tinubu has instructed his ministers to present their performance reports to the public. The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, announced this during a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday. The low-key celebration will feature sectoral media briefings by the 47 federal ministers, starting on Thursday.

Idris was joined at the press conference by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, and the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Abubakar Bagudu.

President Tinubu was declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, on March 1, 2023. Running as the candidate for the All Progressives Congress, Tinubu secured 8.7 million votes, defeating Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, who received 6.9 million votes, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, who garnered 6.1 million votes.

During the opening of a three-day cabinet retreat for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries, and top government officials on November 1, 2023, President Tinubu emphasized that his ministers’ tenure would depend on their performance, which will be reviewed quarterly. This directive aligns with his commitment to accountability and effectiveness in governance.
