Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Babachir Lawal, has assured Nigerians that the country was in safe hands under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The country is in safe hands and we will try our best to deliver the change the All Progressives Congress (APC) promised Nigerians, we have no time to waste in ensuring this,” the SGF said in Abuja at a reception organised in his honour by his friends and well wishers.
He expressed optimism that the ministerial nominees would do well to advance the course of the nation and the people when they eventually allotted portfolio.
The SGF said that his faith in the ministerial nominees to deliver was based on his personal relationship with some of them over the years.
He thanked God and the organisers of the reception and assured Nigerians that he would live up to their expectations in office.
Speaking earlier, the APC National Chairman, Mr John Oyegun, described the SGF as “a fiat loyalist and a man of impeccable character”.
He said that the SGF was humble to a fault and “brutally frank and ferocious in defending whatever he believes in”.
