President Bola Tinubu on Monday swore in the eight new Permanent Secretaries, whose appointments he approved last Friday after they successfully scaled the Federal Civil Service’s selection process.
Tinubu swore in the newly elevated officers just before the commencement of this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting, over which he is currently presiding.
The new Permanent Secretaries include Ndakayo-Aishetu Gogo; Adeoye Ayodeji; Rimi Abba; Bako Odoh; Omachi Omenka; Ahmed Umar; Watti Tinuke; and Ella Agbo.
Meanwhile, President Tinubu is currently presiding over the FEC meeting, which is being attended by Vice President Kashim Shettima.
Also present are the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume; the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan; the Chief of Staff to the President, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila.
Monday’s FEC gathering is also being attended by all ministers and some other senior presidential aides who were earlier allowed by Tinubu to appear in FEC meetings.
