- Political appointees in President Muhammadu Buhari's cabinet have been charged to work towards the FG's nine-point agenda
- SGF Boss Mustapha made this call during a speech to Buhari's ministers at a retreat programme in the FCT
- Mustapha emphasised that delivering the promises made to Nigerians during the election should be made a top priority by all appointees
The Nigerian presidency has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari’s aides and ministers to deliver on promises made to Nigerians on the nine priority areas.
Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation, made this call while speaking in Abuja on Monday, September 7, during the “Ministerial Performance Review Retreat” organised for ministers by the presidency.
The retreat, Legit.ng gathers, was designed to prepare and sensitise cabinet members on the status of policies, programmes and projects of government and the road map towards the delivery of its priorities and “Next Level Agenda” for 2019 to 2023.
“This retreat is expected to provide an opportunity for us as a government to review the First-Year report of the “Ministerial Mandates”, with respect to the commitment to deliver on the nine priority areas of this Administration," the SGF said.
Speaking further, Mustapha said the retreat is also designed to allow for transparency on the status of implementation of policies, programmes and projects of the government and the roadmap towards the delivery of the 9-priority agenda of this administration.
He analysed the nine priorities of the Buhari government as:
- Building a thriving and sustainable economy,
- Enhance social inclusion and reduce poverty,
- Enlarge agricultural output for food security and export,
- Attain energy sufficiency in power and petroleum products and expand transport and other infrastructural development,
- Expanding business growth, entrepreneurship and industrialisation,
- Expand access to quality education, affordable healthcare and productivity of Nigerians,
- Build a system to fight corruption,
- Improve governance and create social cohesion and
- Improve security for all.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that after being confronted with questions over President Buhari's achievements in the last five years, the presidency reeled-out names of projects completed and ongoing by the current government.
In what started like another social media flare-up, Mustapha Bulama, a Daily Trust cartoonist and journalist, asked Twitter users to mention major projects done by the Buhari-led government.
