Must read

The APC 2023 Senatorial Candidate for Benue South, Comrade Daniel Onjeh, has congratulated former Governor of Benue State and immediate past Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs and Special Duties, Sen. (Dr.) George Akume, on his appointment as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) by President Ahmed Bola Tinubu.

In a Press Statement issued today, Com. Onjeh described Sen. Akume’s appointment as the fixing of a square peg in a square hole, and expressed optimism that the current administration would hit the ground running and achieve peak efficiency in its policy formulation, implementation and monitoring/evaluation, having painstakingly appointed the most eligible personality with the appropriate blend of character, experience and loyalty as the SGF.

“Senator Akume is an exemplary public servant, a thoroughbred intellectual, a grassroots politician to the core and a perfect gentleman. I have absolutely no doubt in his superior capacity to effectively pilot the exalted office of the SGF under the Tinubu-led Administration,” the statement added.

Onjeh further noted that having served creditably as a State Governor for two consecutive terms, a Senator for three terms and a Minister of the Federal Republic for four straight years, coupled with his impressive pedigree in the public service from which he retired meritoriously as a Permanent Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education in 1998, Sen. Akume was poised to deploy his vast wealth of experience in providing sound counsel to the Federal Government; while driving policy formulation and implementation, as well as the monitoring of the various Federal Ministries, Department and Agencies.

Com. Onjeh thanked the leadership of the APC for earlier zoning the position of the SGF to the North Central, while equally congratulating the entire good people of Benue State for the great honour brought to the state by virtue of Sen. Akume’s appointment as the SGF.
