President Muhammadu Buhari will today (Wednesday) inaugurate the ministers-designate and assign portfolios to them.
The event, which will take place at the State House, comes as the two-day retreat hosted by President Buhari for the incoming ministers came to an end on Tuesday.
In his closing remarks at the retreat, Buhari had reminded participants that the challenges ahead of the administration remained significant and urged them to work collaboratively and purposefully.
He added that they should give their best to the task of delivering a more prosperous country for all Nigerians.
In a statement on Tuesday, Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity had said “Following the swearing-in, each minister will be given a mandate based on the assigned ministry, and which will spell out priorities, deliverables and timelines. In addition, a robust monitoring and evaluation framework will also be put in place to track the implementation of all policies and programmes over the next four years.”
