The Honorable Minister of Interior Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo has reiterated his resolve to be remembered as the Minister that helped the President to secure borders in Nigeria, that is a legacy and not as the Minister that solved the problems of obtaining the Nigerian Passport.

Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo expressed his concern over the plight of Nigerians residing at the border communities with the belief that they are neglected.

"I want to make sure they feel they are part of Nigeria, by providing them with necessary infrastructures and other essential services, to improve their wellbeing." He said.

The minister stated that he does not want to disappoint Nigerians and Mr. President who appointed him as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. 

"I am committed not to fail Nigerians. It takes a lot of confidence, courage and determination."

The Honourable Minister, Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo made this known when the Chief Commissioner of Public Complaints Commission Hon. Abimbola Ayo Yussuf and his state Commissioners paid him a courtesy visit in his office, Abuja on Tuesday.

Dr. Olubunmi, while revealing the importance of feedback in workforce, said; "I like criticism, but not destructive criticism. When you criticize in the aim of making the system better, the other person will not just be a winner, but a winner for Nigerian as a country."
