The new Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha has been sworn in today.
Mustapha was sworn by the president at the state house a few hours ago. A statement released by the presidency on the event states:
“Mr Boss Gida Mustapha sworn in this morning by President Buhari as the new Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF). Until his appointment the new SGF was Managing Director of the National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA).”
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and some aides of the President and top bureaucrats were also present.
Recall that the former SGF, Babachir Lawal, had been relieved of his duties by the president after he became accused of embezzling funds meant to provide services for internally displaced persons.
