Sack any minister that is under-performing – Speaker Abbas tells Tinubu


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, called on President Bola Tinubu to dismiss underperforming cabinet members.

Abbas made this plea during the resumption of plenary on Tuesday.

He also recommended implementing new strategies to combat the widespread insecurity plaguing the nation.

Abbas emphasized that if not promptly addressed, the security situation has the potential to jeopardize the nation’s stability.

He further highlighted that despite numerous efforts implemented to address the security concerns, the situation remains unresolved.

Consequently, it is crucial to adopt alternative approaches as the traditional methods employed thus far have proven inadequate.

“The threats of insurgency are severely testing the peace and stability of our country, the rise in kidnapping for ransom and the unsettling unrest and crises across all the six geo-political zones. Families and communities have endured immense hardships, and our hearts go out to all those affected by these tumultuous events,” he said.

Speaking further, Abbas expressed sadness over the tragic murder of Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar and Folorunsho Ariyo by kidnappers and the Plateau massacre that claimed over 100 people as well as the victims of the recent blast in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Furthermore, the Speaker tasked President Tinubu to demand “Greater performance and accountability from our service chiefs and all security and enforcement agencies. I implore the President not to shy away from making the tough decisions. If necessary, we must not hesitate to enact changes within our security apparatus, for the cost of inaction is far too great to bear.”
