President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, directed the newly selected Ministers to go to his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari with any request meant for him and and Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, with all executive matters.

He said this while closing the two day Presidential Retreat for the incoming Ministers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said: “In terms of coordination, kindly ensure that all submissions for my attention or meeting requests be channelled through the Chief of Staff, while all Federal Executive Council matters be coordinated through the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

“Public service is not easy work, and at times it can be thankless. I am therefore charging you all to see this opportunity to serve as an honour, to give your best to deliver on this mandate, for a more prosperous Nigeria, not for some, but for all Nigerians.

“You will find that working collaboratively and purposefully will enable us to achieve quicker results, recognizing that four years is not a very long time.

“For the new Ministers, make sure you engage and benefit from the experience of the older Ministers and former Governors in the cabinet.”
