The President gave the directive on Wednesday during the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Addressing State House Correspondents after the meeting, the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Kayode Fayemi said the President urged his cabinet members to work harder to earn the trust of Nigerians.
Admitting that the challenges were still enormous, Fayemi said Ministers could not afford to rest on their oars.
According to Fayemi, “We cannot afford to rest on our oars. We need to communicate to Nigerians what we are doing. We would find a way to speak individually about what we have been doing in the last one year.
“At the ministry level there, will be some kind of commemoration but nothing extraordinary.
“The President’s charge is simple. You know the President is not a man of many words. His charge to us is for us to just get on with it and ensure that we earn the trust of Nigerians by doing the best we can to serve the country.”
