In preparation for their  inauguration on Wednesday, ministers designate are attending a two-day retreat in Abuja.
The President while addressing the ministers, told the ministers that the country and the administration would be relying on them to implement  policies and programmes that can lift Nigerians out of poverty.

“I count on you”, Buhari said.

He added “We must work as a team. Working as a team demands that we know what the next person is doing. You must open communication with your colleagues. Lack of communication leads to lack of cooperation and sub-optimal performance.

 “We are working to lift Nigerians out of poverty and set them on the path to prosperity. We intend to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty over the next 10 years.”

He went further to congratulate the new members of his cabinet.

In his words, “I congratulate all newcomers who are joining the first-termers. You’re in office to assist and advise the President in running the affairs of Nigeria. A great privilege to be called to serve and you must grasp the chance with two hands and put in your best efforts.”

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, while addressing the ministers, said, “All our work must connect to the aspirations of the people.”

The retreat also has in attendance the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
