The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, says the first anniversary of President Bola Tinubu’s administration will be low-key.

Idris made this known at the Ministerial Press Briefing on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, the move is in line with President Tinubu’s desire to serve the country and efficiently use resources for the good of all Nigerians.

He said “The first anniversary will be low key, there will be no celebration, it will be a sectorial presentation by ministries.

“This is in line with Tinubu’s administration to ensure efficient and judicious use of resources to deliver dividends of democracy to citizens.

“Thus, over time, the Ministry of Information and National Orientation finds it worthy to always brief the media and people on what the Federal Government is doing.”

The minister urged media practitioners to do their job with a deep sense of responsibility and patriotism.

He reiterated that as part of the Ministerial Briefing, ministers of various ministries would begin presentations on May 22.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the briefing attracted heads of agencies under the ministry, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Ministry of State for FCT, among others.
