The minister is a seasoned economist, investment banker, and former commissioner of finance in Lagos state when Tinubu was governor. The president has expressed confidence in him on several occasions.

Speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday, May 30, Ojo said the finance minister fell short of expectations during the period reviewed.

The analyst named four other ministers he listed as worst-performers during Tinubu’s first year in office.

Atiku Bagudu, minister of budget and national planning

The analyst rated the immediate past governor of Kebbi state and former senator as one of Tinubu’s worst-performing ministers during the show.

Tinubu initially came under fire for appointing Bagudu, who faced media criticism for allegedly helping the late military head of state, General Sani Abacha, to steal and launder Nigeria’s money.

Ibrahim Geidam, minister of police affairs

In the same vein, Ojo said the former governor of Yobe state, who is minister of police affairs under Tinubu’s administration, performed poorly in the last 365 days.

Geidam was a serving senator between 2019 and 2023 before Tinubu appointed him as minister. Since his appointment, he has maintain a low public profile, with relatively little media mention.

Badaru Abubakar, minister of defence

Badaru is another Tinubu’s minister rated poorly in the last one year. Badaru was among the first set of ministers appointed by Tinubu.

The minister of defence rarely appears in the media despite heading a ministry crucial to the country’s security and defence.

Abbas Lawal, minister of environment

Lawal was appointed as a minister under Tinubu to replace the former governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, after the senate rejected the latter during screening over security concerns.

Since he was appointed minister, Lawal has not made the headlines as expected, especially as the discussion on climate change takes on the global stage.

Below is the video of Ojo’s ranking of Tinubu’s worst-performing ministers:

PDP chieftain knocks Tinubu’s minister

In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, Rilwan Olanrewaju, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), asked Tinubu to sack Edun and the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Yemi Cardoso, over their failed economic policies that weakened the naira.

Olanrewaju blamed Edun and Cardoso for Nigeria’s economic woes, adding that they did not implement the right policies to revive the dwindling economy.

The PDP chieftain said:

“Mr Cardoso and Wale Edun are two confused people who found their way into power because their godfather rigged his way into Aso Rock, not because they are truly qualified. It’s sad that Tinubu continued from where Buhari stopped. The government of Padi Padi.
“Only in Nigeria will the country’s financial officers adopt unreal policies to protect the weak currency and recruit many bodies to carry out day-to-day propaganda on the media.”

Legit earlier reported that Ojo and Johnson Kolawole, data/governance analyst; as well as Bell Ihua, the executive director of the Africa Polling Institute, also rated the president’s best performing ministers.

The analysts, who featured on Channels TV’s Politics Today, said despite the challenges before them, the ministers, which include Nyesom Wike, bridged expectations.
