President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the ministers-designate to “count themselves privileged to have been chosen among millions of their compatriots to be the drivers of the change that the ruling party promised Nigerians.” He spoke yesterday at a retreat for ministers-designate held at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.
The President said that the government officials’ determination to succeed must be equal to the nation’s challenges.
While recalling that his election was hinged on his promise to tackle corruption, insecurity and improve the economy, he said that the ministers-designate must be agents of the change promised by his administration.
According to Nigeria’s number one citizen, the diversification of the nation’s economy would be the focus of his government.
The retreat is being attended by President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, all ministers-designate and other presidential aides and top government officials.
The event is being organised by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and it is holding at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had on Tuesday submitted the list of screened and confirmed ministers to President Muhammadu Buhari.
