Hassan said: "President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office with a promise of "change" amidst plethora of challenges that pose existential threat to Nigerians and Nigeria."
"With no easy way out of the inherited challenges, the government was confronted with two choices and the choice were either the government does the right things to re-position the country and deliver services to the country or do the wrong and deepen the suffering of Nigerians.
"The government choose the former, hence the focus on securing the country and the the purpose of the summit.
"Since the federal government's change agenda is a journey with growth and development as the ultimate goals, there is need for a review of the journey so far.
"To this end, we want to communicate the milestones that have been covered, analyse the challenges encountered in the course of implementing the various policies of government and of course plan for a better future better future," Hassan said.
