… Resumes office immediately after swearing-in by President Tinubu
The Newly sworn-in Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, George Akume, has promised never to disappoint both the president, Bola Tinubu and Nigerians.
Akume was sworn in by President Bola Tinubu at the council chamber, Wednesday, in the presence of some government officials.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the ceremony, the new SGF promised to discharge his duties in the interest of Nigerians.
His statement reads:
“I assure Nigerians I will do my best, I will not disappoint the President, I will not disappoint this country and I will not disappoint my party.
“I believe Nigerians will find fulfillment in my responsibilities as I discharge that in their own interest. It is an honour to serve the country and I am strongly persuaded that guided by Almighty God, I will do my best and Nigerians will really have to reap the dividends of democracy.”
Akume served as the minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Shortly after the President administered the Oath of Office on Akume, he subsequently headed to his office located at the Three Arms Zone in Abuja.
He arrived at exactly 3:30 pm and was ushered in with a performance from a local band.
Akume was received by staff, directors, and permanent secretaries in the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, on Wednesday, signed and handed over documents of office to his successor, George Akume.
The handover took place at the SGF office located at the Three Arms Zone in Abuja, shortly after Akume’s arrival.Follow us on social media
