Former Senator Adeyemi Smart, who represented Kogi West in the ninth Senate, recently shared his insights during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today. He highlighted President Bola Tinubu’s firm commitment to holding ministers accountable for their performance, affirming that they would be dismissed if they failed to meet expectations within a six-month timeframe.
Adeyemi commended President Tinubu for his track record of swift action when it comes to non-performing ministers. He emphasized that the President’s approach was aimed at bringing about a positive transformation in the nation and reclaiming any lost ground.
Adeyemi explained, “What Nigerians should know about President Bola Tinubu today, including those who are ministers, is that from his track record, once you don’t perform in six months, he shows you the way out. That’s what he’s going to do. The man (Tinubu) is in a hurry to make a difference. Asiwaju wants to make a name. He wants to reposition Nigeria. He wants to recover lost grounds for the nation. He’s telling us that he appreciates we’re going through some pains. He’s coming with a track record of performance. Those who are being nominated or given appointments, I celebrate you, but if you don’t perform, this man will show them (the way) out. It’s not a question of leaving them for eight years or four years. Asiwaju doesn’t have that kind of track record.”
In addition to discussing President Tinubu’s approach to ministerial performance, Adeyemi also addressed a recent Senate controversy involving Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume and Senate President Godswill Akpabio. He stated that the 10th Assembly is still in its early stages, and members are adapting to their roles. Adeyemi described the Senate President as a harmless figure and anticipated that, with time, the Assembly members would become better acquainted with each other.
