“People’s expectations are very high and expectedly so”, Tinubu said. “The people’s hope is hinged on the change our party promised. You are now the foot soldiers of that change. You have to be creative, proactive and bold. You are men and women of talent and experience of the moment and are lucky to be chosen. After the luck comes work”.

“After the devastating effects of the mismanagement by the previous administration on our economy and the psyche of Nigerians you have been selected to help bring Nigeria back from the brink. Your assignment will not be easy. You bear the responsibility to move Nigeria forward into the rank of developed nations”.

Tinubu underlined his words with a quote from Aneesh Chopra’s “Innovative State”, saying the words resonate for all the ministers:

“This is about creating an innovative State. A government for the 21st Century. One that engages its diverse society encourages participation and creates a partnership towards problem-solving”.
