The expert told TheTalk.NG:

“A few months back, in his New Year message to Nigerians, Mr. President said, and I quote: ‘I took an oath to serve this country and give my best at all times. Like I said in the past, no excuse for poor performance from any of my appointees will be good enough. It is the reason I put in place a policy coordination, evaluation, monitoring and delivery unit in the presidency to make sure that governance output improves the living conditions of our people.’

“So, he (Tinubu) knows this is the logical thing to do.”

Furthermore, Akinleye said if people go on the streets today to ask Nigerian citizens which presidential appointee should be fired, “they will close their eyes and mention them”.

He continued:

“Let’s look at the ministry of marine and blue economy, how do you put a communication veteran in a ministry of mines? What has he been able to do? And this is me just mentioning a few ministries.”
