Just as everyone is waiting for the portfolio for individual ministers-designate, it seems President Muhammadu Buhari is more concerned with their performance as touching the lives of Nigerians and making impact in his administration.
President Buhari while addressing the minsters-designate at the yesterday two-day retreat said the expectations of Nigerians are high and they (ministers) must be a vehicle of change he (Buhari) promised Nigerians.
Buhari said, “The expectations of Nigerians are high. Our determination to succeed and change the fortunes of our country must be equal to the challenge.
“I have invited you to join me in this urgent mission for our country. I am convinced that in accepting this invitation you are also equally determined to take part in this patriotic undertaking.”
Buhari reminded them that his election as president was hinged on his promise to tackle corruption, insecurity and revive the economy.
Reiterating the point he made at his inauguration about the uniqueness of this moment for the country and for Nigerians, Buhari told the ministers-designate that they came on board the ship of governance at an interesting time.
The retreat was attended by the vice-president and all the ministers-designate.
