The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed confidence in the ability of the Ministers appointed by President Bola Tinubu to perform their roles excellently.
The ruling party expressed the optimism in its congratulatory message shortly after the 45 Ministers were sworn-in on Monday, 21 August, 2023, at an event held at the banquet hall of the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja.
According to the APC, the Ministers will ensure the implementation of the Renewed Hope Agenda to transform Nigeria.
“We congratulate newly-appointed ministers on their inauguration by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR. We are confident that the new members of Federal Executive Council will ensure the successful implementation of our Renewed Hope agenda to positively transform our dear country,” the ruling party tweeted.
Meanwhile, President Bola Tinubu on Monday, 21 August, 2023 vowed to hold his Ministers accountable for the standards that Nigerians have been promised.
President Tinubu spoke during his address to the Ministers at the Conference Centre of the State House, Abuja.
He said, “I know you and I delegate this authority, but the greatest number of Nigerians are highly expectant of delivery, accountability, and transparency. Nigerians expect that you will act with integrity, dignity, and deliver. I will hold you to that standard we all promised Nigerians.
“It’s all about a great team, and I believe we have them here. It is a high honour to be chosen to serve as a minister in the Federal Executive Council of our beloved republic, and with such a high honour comes tremendous responsibility.
“In this moment of abundant promise and peril in equal measure, all of you who have been sworn in have been called to distinguish yourselves.
“Your assignment begins immediately. As your country honours you today with this call to service, you must each work to make your self worthy in the eyes of God and all our nation’s people.
“Your highest obligation is to restore public faith in government so that our people can once again believe that the right hands in government can be a positive force for transformation and a vehicle for the collective progress of this country”.
