The New Minister of Interior, Mr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, has urged the paramilitary chiefs under the ministry to discharge their duties in line with the mandates that established them for effective service delivery.
The minister gave the advice on assumption of duty on Monday in Abuja.
Tunji-Ojo added that he would hold them accountable for any infraction during the course of their duties.
The minister added further that he was in the ministry to work but in doing that, there must be a good working environment.
He reminded them that the work of the ministry affected everyone, whether rich or poor, senior or junior.
“I don’t lead from the back, I lead from the front. We will try to do our best to provide leadership, built on the foundation of your support.
“I do not inherit enemies and I do not inherit friends. I make my own enemies and I earn my own friends.
” I am here to make a change and I am here to deliver results and I need you to help me to achieve that.
“Just as Mr President will hold me accountable for whatever happens here in the ministry, I will never hold your subordinates responsible for anything.
“Therefore, it is you people that I will hold responsible for anything that goes wrong in the ministry,” he stressed.
Earlier, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr Oluwatoyin Akinlade promised to work with the minister harmoniously to take the ministry to greater heights. (NAN)(
