A retreat for ministers-designate has begun at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory.
President Buhari 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”.
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.
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 Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, all ministers-designate and other presidential aides and top government officials.
