I won’t disappoint Nigerians, new SGF Akume says

June 7, 2023

The newly sworn-in secretary to the Nigerian government, George Akume, says he will not disappoint Nigerians and President Bola Tinubu who appointed him to office.

Mr Akume addressed State House journalists after he was sworn in as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) by Mr Tinubu on Wednesday.

“To have been selected to serve in this exalted position out of over 200 million Nigerians, it is a challenge to serve in line with the oath I have taken today.

“I assure Nigerians I will do my best, I will not disappoint the President, I will not disappoint this country and I will not disappoint my party.

“I believe Nigerians will find fulfilment in my responsibilities as I discharge that in their own interest. It is an honour to serve the country and I am strongly persuaded that guided by Almighty God, I will do my best and Nigerians will really have to reap the dividends of democracy.

Mr Akume, a former governor of Benue State and chieftain of the ruling party, APC, said he will follow in the footsteps of President Tinubu.

“I am someone who has been on the scene for quite some time and I know the man we are serving, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President and we just have to follow his footsteps.

“He has never been in the gallery, which is always full of critics. He has always been in the arena, where the doers are. He is a doer, so we have to tag along. We must never afford to fail,” he said.
