Speaking shortly after administering the oath of office on the new permanent secretaries, the president tasked them to see their appointment as an emergency call to duty as they came at a time when the nation’s economy was ailing.

Addressing 16 of the 18 new Permanent Secretaries the president stated: “In keeping with the change mantra of this administration, the process for your selection as permanent secretaries was a departure from the previous practice of administering written and oral examinations.

Instead, a more rigorous selection process, entailing vigorous screening of candidates’ past records, potential and capacity for holding the office, integrity, honesty and sense of commitment was adopted. It is my hope that your subsequent conduct and performance will not prove this administration wrong.

This ​a​dministration will not condone any excesses, indifference, incompetence, and corrupt practices in any form. Permanent secretaries are therefore advised to note these words of caution and disseminate them to all civil servants accordingly.
