The President of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reduced the number of people accompanying him on local and foreign trips by 60 percent to slashed the cost of governance.

The Global News reports that the directive was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media, Ajuri Ngelale on Tuesday, in Abuja.

The directive also affects the Vice President of Nigeria, Kashim Shettima and the First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu.

Henceforth only 20 people will accompany the President on foreign trips and five each for the VP and First Lady.

On local trips, Tinubu will have a 25-man entourage, 15 for VP and 10 for First Lady.

He also directed that his security personnel be heavily reduced during visit to states in Nigeria as the security architecture in the states he is visiting would take charge of his personal security.

President Tinubu warned that any minister or public servant that violates this directive would be sanctioned.
