Hadiza Bala Usman, Special Adviser to the President on Policy and Coordination and Head of the Central Delivery and Coordination Unit, says the President will sack ministers who fail to deliver on the mandates of their offices.

The Special Adviser said this in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State at the opening of the technical retreat for delivery desk officers of federal ministries on implementation of presidential priorities and ministerial deliverables.

She urged the delivery officers and directors of planning in ministries who were present at the retreat to commit to their jobs.

“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,” she said.

“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 bottlenecks to the central coordinating and delivery unit (CDCU).

“As I was saying at the ministry of aviation recently, we will be assessing FAAN on customer experience at the airports; are the escalators, lifts, and conveyor belts functional? How swift is security clearance both for passengers and vehicles in accessing the airport?

“What are the consequences of delayed time of departure for airlines? These are things that everybody can feel and see. When we are talking about agriculture, we want to see our index of fertilizer use per hectare grow in view of the attendant investment that has been made in fertilizer interventions.”

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) George Akume represented by former Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Olusegun Adekunle, said the plan of the President to ensure the active and direct participation of citizens in governance.

He added that ministries and parastatals have the role they need to play in ensuring that the government deliver on its mandates.
