President Bola Tinubu has received praise from a group operating under the auspices of the Northern Christian Youth Professionals for believing Senator George Akume, a former governor of Benue State, to be deserving of the position of Secretary General of the Federation.
The group said they are happy that Akume’s remarkable leadership abilities are being recognized at the highest level and praised the president for his sincere commitment in sustaining the principles of federal character and inclusion.
During his political tenure in the Senate, the former governor served as the House Committee on Army Chairman and as Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs in the cabinet of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement released on Friday in Abuja, the group’s chairman, Isaac Abrak, emphasized that the selection represents a big step toward the inclusion and togetherness of the nation.
We highly welcome Senator Akume’s appointment as proof that the present administration is committed to helping all Nigerians, regardless of their ethnic or religious origins, he added. It supports the idea that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu would keep his word about unifying Nigeria and making sure that each and every person is respected and represented in national administration.
Most intriguingly, we applaud President Tinubu for upholding his well-known dedication to meritocracy while selecting important appointments.
George Akume’s appointment as Secretary General of the Federation, along with that of Speaker Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and Senator Ibrahim Hassan Hadejia as Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff, respectively, shows that the government places an emphasis on qualifications and competence over sentiments.
“We definitely think that Akume’s selection will significantly advance the harmony, development, and growth of our wonderful country. He is the perfect candidate for this crucial position due to his outstanding leadership abilities, unshakable commitment, and profound knowledge of the needs and ambitions of the Nigerian people. The interests of all Nigerians would be prioritized under his leadership, and steps will be taken toward a more wealthy and unified country.
The Northern Christian Youth Professionals once more offer Senator George Akume their heartfelt greetings and express their appreciation for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s dedication to bringing Nigeria together and preserving meritocracy in important appointments.
