President Muhammadu Buhari will today inaugurate the 43 ministers-designate who have been confirmed by the Senate.
This was confirmed by the media adviser to the President, Femi Adesina.
In a statement on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, Adesina noted that the Presidential Retreat for ministers-designate had ended, hence, the inauguration is to follow.
He said that the retreat ended with a charge from the President to the Ministers-designate to rise to the challenging responsibilities of Ministerial office.
The swearing-in ceremony is to take place at the State House, after which the ministers-designate will be allocated portfolios by the President.
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.
Adesina also stated that 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.
