Exactly 33 days to completion of tenure, President Muhammadu Buhari has administered the oath of office on six new permanent secretaries in the Federal Civil Service.

He performed the ceremony inside the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja shortly before the commencement of the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

Those sworn in and their states of origin are Mahmud Kambari (Borno State), Esuabana Nko-Asanye (Cross River), Lamuwa Ibrahim (Gombe), (Yakubu Kofar-Mata (Kano), Oloruntola Michael (Ogun) and Richard Pheelangwah (Taraba State).

According to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who read their citations, the ceremony marked the culmination of a weeks-long prequalification exercise for directors by the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.

He said: “Mr President, six persons have fulfilled the conditions as permanent secretaries after a selection exercise recently conducted for directors.

“This exercise involved competency tests and interactions with a wide range of stakeholders.

Recall the President approved their appointment as permanent secretaries about a month ago.

The Head of Civil of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, had on March 29, 2023, announced that the President approved the appointment of the six permanent secretaries in the Federal Civil Service following the recently conducted selection process.
