Amid growing anxiety over the delayed constitution of a federal cabinet, President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday directed the 43 ministers-designate to submit their Curriculum Vitae to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The president issued the directive through a memo to the new ministers by the SGF, Boss Mustapha.
The memo also directed the ministers to prepare for an induction retreat holding in Abuja from August 15 – 16, 2019.
The ministers were confirmed by the Senate on Thursday.
The memo reads:
“Following confirmation by the Senate, All Ministers Designate are by this NOTICE informed that relevant documents for their study and guidance, preparatory to the inauguration of the Cabinet shall be available for collection at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF) (Cabinet Affairs Office) from 10.00am on Tuesday August 6, 2019.
2. Ministers Designate are also requested to please bring along and submit to the OSGF, their updated CV in soft and hard copies as well as any valid identification document.
3. Finally, I am pleased to inform you that, in view of the need to allow Ministers Designate enough time to study the documents (Status Report on Policies, Programmes and Projects; the 2019-2023 Road Map, FEC Handbook, etc) and considering the upcoming Sallah break, His Excellency, Mr. President has approved an INDUCTION RETREAT for Ministers Designate to be held at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja from August 15-16, 2019.
