REAL REASONS TINUBU IS IN FRANCE
Contrary to widespread insinuations that the President travelled to Paris, France due to some health challenges, it is gathered authoritatively that the current Paris private visit of the President was designed for him to evaluate his Presidency and the performance of his ministers, so far.
President Bola Tinubu had on Wednesday departed Abuja for Paris, France, for a private visit.
Sources said that the President is likely to sack some ministers when he returns from Paris.
A reliable source confirmed that the President was not happy with the direction of his regime, especially on the economy and the severe burden Nigerians are experiencing.
The Special Adviser to the President on Policy and Coordination and Head, Central Delivery and Coordination Unit, Hadiza Bala-Usman, said last week that the President will drop ministers who do not deliver on their mandates.
Speaking at the opening of the technical retreat for delivery desk officers of federal ministries on implementation of presidential priorities and ministerial deliverables in Uyo on Wednesday, Bala-Usman said the President was serious about delivering on his promise to make life better and easier for Nigerians.
While asking for the total commitment of delivery officers and directors of planning in ministries who were present at the retreat, she admonished them to get serious with their jobs, describing them as “engine rooms.”
“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.
“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 bottle to the CDCU,” she stated.
Both the People’s Democratic Party and the Labour Party, had on Wednesday, demanded an explanation as President Tinubu departed Abuja for France on what the Presidency described as a private visit.
The PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Ibrahim Abdullahi, stated that the insecurity and the state of the nation’s economy made it the worst time for Tinubu to embark on a foreign trip.This was as the spokesman for the LP 2023 Presidential Campaign Council, Yunusa Tanko, alleged that there was a hidden agenda for the trip and mentioned that the President was sick.
