A two-day retreat for 36 ministerial nominees who were recently screened and confirmed by the Senate kicks off today.

It was gathered that the ministers-designate arrived Abuja last night for the retreat which will hold at the International Conference Center (ICC) Abuja.

The event which would commence by 9:am is expected to be declared open President Muhammadu Buhari.

It is also expected that the inauguration of the appointees would take place soon after the retreat.
