President Bola Tinubu has revealed that he has no plan of reducing his cabinet.
Tinubu who made this known while receiving a delegation of the Christian Association of Nigeria, led by its President, Daniel Okoh, at the Aso Villa, Abuja on Monday, expressed doubt that reducing his cabinet members would guarantee a boost in performance
The President however justified his cabinet of 47 ministers, noting that the number reflects the diversity of roles required to run an efficient government.
“I have had several criticisms, including the rationale behind the size of my cabinet. If you want efficient, mobile, and resourceful people, we have to give people a load they can carry.
“If you combine too many ministries because you want to save money, you will have a future of non-performance and no results.
“Nigeria needs to turn the corner to grow, and we must give people challenges they can manage, and that is what we are doing,” Tinubu said.
