President Tinubu's Call: Unity in National Service and Reform

Exactly 84 days after he assumed power, President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet took off yesterday, with the president asking his 45 ministers to serve the country with “integrity, dignity and deliver” in their different assignments, instead of serving their states and regions.

Upholding Integrity and Overcoming Daunting Challenges

Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony of the 45 ministers at the State House Conference Centre (Old Banquet Hall), Abuja, Tinubu said the country is currently battling “daunting” challenges, adding that the ministers must implement “long overdue” reforms and restore the citizenry’s belief in government.

“Your highest obligation is to return public faith in government so that our people can once again believe what the right hands in government can show.” — President Bola Tinubu

A United Vision for National Progress

President Tinubu emphasized that the ministers were ministers of the country and not ministers of a region or state, urging them to work collectively to meet the expectations of Nigerians.

He highlighted the importance of unity and collaboration among the ministers, as they embark on the task of transforming the nation.

“We are on this boat, even if it is a vehicle and I am the driver.”

“The entire Nigerians are behind sitting and watching as you and I navigate this vehicle. We must hold each other responsible.” — President Bola Tinubu

Diverse Cabinet, Renewed Hope

The composition of the cabinet showcases a blend of experience and fresh perspectives, with each minister assigned to specific portfolios to address critical issues facing the nation.

This diverse team brings with it a promise of renewed hope and a commitment to positive change.

“Under my stewardship, the Ministry of Labour and Employment will fulfill its mandate of ensuring decent work for all Nigerians and making sure that our citizens, particularly the youth and women get the opportunity to deploy their energy, creativity, talent and gifts to the development of the nation.” — Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Lalong

Open Dialogue and Collaborative Solutions

In an effort to address key concerns such as the removal of fuel subsidy, President Tinubu directed ministers to engage with Organized Labour in negotiations aimed at finding solutions that alleviate the challenges faced by Nigerian workers.

The focus on open dialogue and cooperation underscores the administration’s commitment to working collaboratively with stakeholders to achieve positive outcomes.

“I have come here to utilise the energy to revamp the sector.”

“I am here to work with the agencies to increase production on a sustainable basis.”

“I am not going to spend more time in the office.”

“I am going to spend more time in the fields so that we can achieve results.” — Minister of State Petroleum Resources (Oil), Heineken Lokpobiri

Immediate Action, Demonstrated Commitment

The newly sworn-in ministers wasted no time in beginning their duties, demonstrating their dedication to fulfilling the promises made to the Nigerian people.

Their immediate engagement with their respective ministries signals a proactive approach to addressing challenges and implementing reforms.

United in Service, Guided by Vision

As this new chapter unfolds, it is evident that the President’s call for unity, integrity, and service will guide the actions of the ministers.

The emphasis on national service over regional interests underscores the administration’s commitment to the collective progress of Nigeria.

With a diverse and capable team at the helm, the nation’s challenges will be met with determination, collaboration, and a shared vision for a better future.
