Documentation procedures for the recently appointed ministers are set to kick off on Saturday, marking a significant step towards their formal induction into office. The documentation process, organized by the Office of the Secretary to the Federation, is scheduled to take place over the weekend, commencing from 10 am to 4 pm on both Saturday, August 19, and Sunday, August 20.
In a statement issued on Thursday by Nnamdi Mbaeri, the Permanent Secretary of General Services at the Office of the Secretary to the Federation, ministers-designate were provided with a list of required documents to bring along. Among these documents are their curriculum vitae (CV), birth certificate or declaration of age, and two passport-sized photographs.
Additionally, the statement emphasized the necessity for each minister-designate to provide the names of three guests who will be accompanying them during the documentation process. These names are crucial for ensuring smooth access to the venue, which will be the Conference Room at the General Services Office on the second floor of the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The completion of this documentation process is an essential prerequisite for the upcoming swearing-in ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on Monday. During the ceremony, President Bola Tinubu is expected to officially swear in the 45 minister-designates whose portfolios were unveiled on Wednesday. The event will be held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, marking a crucial step in the formation of Nigeria’s new government.
