Tinubu Implements Drastic 60% Cut in Official Entourages

President Bola Tinubu has taken bold steps towards fiscal responsibility by ordering a significant reduction in official entourages for both domestic and international events. The directive, amounting to a substantial 60% cut, applies across various governmental bodies, including Federal MDAs, the Office of the President, the Office of the Vice President, the First Lady’s office, and the office of the Vice President’s wife.

In adherence to the cost-cutting measures, Ministers are now limited to a maximum of four accompanying staff members, while CEOs of agencies can travel with only two staff members. This move aims to streamline official delegations, ensuring a more efficient use of resources.

Spokesperson for the President, Chief Ajuri Ngelale stated that this decision aligns with President Tinubu’s commitment to prudent financial management and accountability. The directive is expected to contribute significantly to reducing expenses associated with official trips.

Additionally, President Tinubu has emphasized that the primary responsibility for his security during travels within the country will be entrusted to the respective states’ security apparatus. This strategic shift aims to optimize existing resources and enhance collaboration with state-level security agencies.

The implementation of these measures reflects the administration’s determination to prioritize fiscal discipline while ensuring the effective functioning of government affairs.
