President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday administered the oath of office on eight new Permanent Secretaries of the Federal Civil Service.

According to presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, the exercise was necessary to “fill existing and impending vacancies of some states and geo-political zones in the top administrative cadre of the Civil Service of the Federation.”

He said the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation embarked on a diligent selection process comprising a written examination, an ICT proficiency test and an interactive session with a broad spectrum of stakeholders to select the new Permanent Secretaries. 

Those sworn in were Emanso Okop Imobong (Akwa Ibom); Obi Emeka Vitalis, (Anambra), Mahmood Fatima, (Bauchi) and Danjuma Mohammed Sanusi, (Jigawa). 

Others were Olusanya Olubunmi, (Ondo), Dr. Keshinro Maryam Ismaila, (Zamfara), Akujobi Chinyere Ijeoma (South-East) and Isokpunwu Christopher Osaruwanmwen (South-South). 

Ngelale said the President anticipated that the new Federal Permanent Secretaries would exercise absolute dedication, diligence, and fidelity to the nation in the discharge of their functions and ensure optimum service delivery to the Nigerian people.

Meanwhile, cabinet members, who witnessed the swearing-in ceremony ahead of the Federal Executive Council meeting, congratulated President Tinubu on his re election as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). 

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sen. George Akume, said the West African regional leaders have seen in the President committed leader working for the growth and development of the country and Africa as a whole and decided to re-elect him.
