The Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Smart Adeyemi said President Bola Tinubu will throw out any minister who fails to perform in six months.
Adeyemi stated this in an interview with Arise Television on Wednesday.
He stated, “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 to the nation.
“He’s telling us that he understands 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.”
Meanwhile, Adeyemi said the legislative experiences of President Tinubu and his Vice, Kashim Shettima, will help them perform excellently.
Adeyemi, who was also an All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant in the Kogi governorship election noted that, once somebody has been in the Senate, that person cannot afford to fail.
He stated, “This is the first time we are having field politicians controlling the executive arm of government.
“President Bola Tinubu, a former senator; Vice-President Kashim Shettima, a former senator, and even the First Lady, Mrs Oluremi Tinubu is a senator.
“If you look at the states that are governed by former senators you will see outstanding performance; like Hope Uzodubma of Imo State.
“In the Senate, you are exposed to the needs and aspirations of Nigerians, ” he said.
Adeyemi said Tinubu’s government would resurrect so many moribund economic and productive endeavours in the country and create opportunities for real economic development.
“Some of us who are fanatical about Tinubu, it is because we are sure of his track record.
“He will not approach you based on your ethnicity or religion, he considers the quality of your thought, and how your mind works.”
