President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has announced 60% reductions in the traveling expenditure for his office and all other officials of the government.
This was contained in a statement released by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, in Abuja today.
The statement revealed that the decision would affect the Office of the President, Vice President, First Lady, Ministers, and Heads of Agencies, and was part of the cost-cutting measures of the Presidency.
He said the slash consequently means that the President is limited to 20 staff outside the country.
He said, “Tinubu has directed that all state entourages be drastically reduced. This is not a request. It is a directive. The office of the president and staff will be affected. VP, appointees are affected.
“By this directive, there will be a slashing of expenditure on official travel by 60 percent.”
Ngelale also said every minister is limited to having just four members of staff on any foreign trip while heads of agencies are limited to just two.
He said Tinubu has also said that he will no longer travel with huge security delegations to any state in the country.
The presidential spokesman also added that if the president travels to any state, the security in the state will take care of his security and the same applies to the vice president and other top government officials.
