President Bola Tinubu Warns His Cabinet, Perform or Leave

Naijanews – President Bola Tinubu has issued a stern warning to his cabinet members and other government appointees that they must deliver on the Renewed Hope Agenda or face the exit door.

He made this declaration on Wednesday at the commencement of a three-day retreat with the theme, “Delivering on the Renewed Hope Agenda,” organised for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries, and top government officials at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

President Bola Tinubu, who said he would sign a bond of understanding with the participants at the end of the retreat, said: “If you’re are performing, nothing to fear. If you’re not performing, we review and if you cannot perform, you leave us.”

The president, who assured them of his support and guidance to carry out their duties, advised them to seek clarification on any aspect of their jobs.

He therefore urged his ministers and other government officials to assist him to succeed.

He acknowledged that he is not infallible and that he would correct any mistake he makes if brought to his attention. “You are here to help me succeed.”

President Bola Tinubu: A Leader for All Nigerians

President Tinubu, who affirmed that he is president for all Nigerians regardless of their political affiliation or not, said the country is one big family with different rooms.

“I’m here to give direction to this family making sure the relationship is stronger by giving hope to our people,” he said.

He cautioned the participants not to view the ministers as transient or opportunistic individuals but as partners who are committed to the development of the nation.

Tinubu said that he has inherited the achievements and challenges of his predecessors, telling the participants that they must remain focused and determined in the midst of chaos around them.

The president, who noted that his administration had spent the last six months “reviewing ourselves”, emphasised the importance of good healthcare and quality education, which he said is the best weapon against poverty.

The president assured foreign investors that they will be able to bring in their capital, invest and repatriate their profits without any hindrance.

Full List Of Private Universities In Nigeria Approved By NUC


Naijanewsngr brings you an exclusive report on the latest findings from the National Universities Commission (NUC), the esteemed regulatory authority overseeing universities in Nigeria.


According to the data extracted from the NUC’s website, the nation currently boasts a total of 147 private universities strategically distributed across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.


The surge in the quest for high-quality university education appears to be a direct response to the challenges posed by industrial crises and the persistent issues of inadequate funding within the public tertiary education sector.


This growing demand has paved the way for a notable increase in the establishment of private universities in the country.


In a noteworthy development, spanning from January 1, 2023, to June 27, 2023, the NUC has granted provisional licenses to an impressive count of 37 new private universities.

Dangote Boost Nigeria’s FX Earnings by $687.977m.




Dangote Boost Nigeria’s FX Earnings by $687.977m.

The management of Dangote Industries Limited (DIL) has announced that the company has sent back more than USD 576 million to Nigeria through different banks. Additionally, they have made a cash swap agreement worth USD 111 million between Dangote Cement Plc and Ethiopian Airlines. This arrangement has helped DIL save an equal amount of money that would have otherwise been paid to the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The company revealed this in a statement released to the media, where it accused BUA Group of sponsoring fake and misleading news about its foreign exchange transactions, approved by the CBN, which were meant for its pan-African operations.

Dangote re-affirmed its determination and belief in Nigeria, noting that the current government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has shown the will and resolve to get the economy moving again.

“We are not body-shop inventors. We believe in Nigeria, and we believe in Africa. We are genuine and authentic about our investments, and we call on all relevant agencies to investigate our FX transactions in the past ten years and make public any infraction noticed or discovered.”

Insisting that all forex purchases with respect to its African Project Expansion were genuine and fully utilized for what they were meant for.

Dangote revealed that the projects for which the forex was utilized are visible for everyone to see.

“It is on record that some of these projects were commissioned by Nigerian top-ranking government officials, and in attendance were chief executives of various banks, captains of industries, and the presidents of the host countries, supported by their senior government officials.

“The commissioning events of these projects were well documented and covered by both local and international media. There are also print and electronic copies of the commissioning ceremonies as further testimony to the judicious utilization of the funds.”

Dangote further explained that its massive investments in pan-Africa will lead to the repatriation of forex in the very near future and boost foreign exchange earnings in Nigeria, as well as stabilize the forex market.
