President Muhammadu Buhari has challenged the ministers-designate to live up to the tasks ahead of them.
According to him, this is in line with the efforts of his administration in addressing the numerous problems facing the country.
The President stated this at the Presidential Retreat for Ministers-Designate in Abuja.
President Buhari believes Nigeria has the solution to challenges if the leaders at various levels pay attention to the opportunities in their environment.
He noted that the nation’s population has an estimate of close to 200 million and the United Nations has also projected Nigeria’s population by 2050 to be about 411 million, just behind India and China.
President Buhari urged the ministers-designate to grasp the opportunity they have with their hands and put in their best effort to support good governance.
He also asked them to brace up for the task ahead, saying his administration remains committed to the well-being of the citizens.
Earlier, in an address of welcome, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, said the retreat was meant to sensitise the cabinet members on the task ahead of them and the need to support the presidency in building a virile nation.
The event had in attendance the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmed Lawan.
Also present included the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, and other party leaders among others.
