George Akume, the newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has pledged to collaborate with President Bola Tinubu.
Akume also promised not to let Nigerians or Tinubu down in the performance of his duties.
After being sworn in as the new SGF at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, he spoke to State House Correspondents.
According to Akume: “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.
“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.”
