Preparations are already being made for a ministerial retreat, which will be attended by the recently appointed ministers and cabinet members of the administration led by President Bola Tinubu.
The retreat at the Presidential Villa where the appointees will be introduced and required to sign a vow to remain dedicated to the President’s “renewed hope” programme will take place soon; however, no official date has been announced as of Friday.
During his presidency, former president Muhammadu Buhari also organised getaways for his cabinet members.
According to The PUNCH, a villa source said, “There will be a ministerial retreat at the villa for the new ministers. I don’t know when yet but it will be after they are sworn in.”
This week, the presidency revealed the portfolios of the newly-appointed ministers and noted that they will be sworn in on August 21, 2023, while their documentation will begin today.
The exercise is anticipated to conclude on Sunday, August 20.
