Mr. Boss Mustapha, the newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), on Wednesday in Abuja, said that President Muhammadu Buhari has deep compassion for the suffering of the Nigerian masses.
If one touches the heartbeat of President Buhari, “he has compassion for the suffering people of this nation”, Mustapha said.
He stated this as the mantle of leadership as the SGF was handed over to him by the Acting SGF, Mrs. Habiba Lawal.
“We have the responsibility of ensuring that this government succeeds. If this government does not succeed, it means that we have not done our jobs well.
“We are supposed to coordinate the policies of this government, monitor the implementation of policies and ensure that the right thing is done,” he said.
Mr. Mustapha noted that it was President Muhamadu Buhari’s desire to ensure that the vicious cycle of poverty that has kept the nation on its kneels is frontally addressed, adding that the cooperation of Nigerians could achieve this in a couple of months and years.
According to him, the civil servants have the capacity to craft solutions to the myriad challenges being faced by the nation, adding that there is no impossibility in reversing the negative trends of the nation.
