Tinubu Justifies Large Cabinet, Says Merging Ministries Will Lead To Non-Performance

On Monday, President Bola Tinubu defended his 48-member cabinet, claiming that combining ministries would result in underperformance.

Speaking at the State House in Abuja, the President urged Nigerians to work together to improve the nation and adopt a new perspective on money. The President was receiving a delegation from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), which is headed by Daniel Okoh.

Nigeria is the only nation we have. According to a statement from his spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu stated, "If you do not preach the sermon of understanding, tolerance, perseverance, and hope for Nigerians, you are doing damage to the country, and nobody will help us repair it."

"I've received a lot of criticism, some of which have addressed the reasoning behind my cabinet's size. If To cut costs, you risk combining too many ministries, which will lead to a future of inefficiency and failure.

"Nigeria needs to turn the corner in order to grow, and we are doing that by giving people challenges they can handle."

Notwithstanding the numerous obstacles the nation faces, Tinubu asserted that his administration is steadfast in its resolve to treat every Nigerian fairly.

Please let us know if you see any shortcomings in my government; we are here to listen. Thanks to your prayers and the divine will of God Almighty, I am here today. Being fair to all Nigerians is what I have challenged myself to do every day," he continued.

Tinubu was not the only one who spoke at the event. The CAN President said the group believes in Tinubu’s administration and is ready to always partner with it.
