President Muhammadu Buhari swore in new Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

The inauguration took place before the commencement of Wednesday's Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

While receiving handing over documents from the outgoing Acting SGF, Dr Habiba Lawal, later on Wednesday, Mustapha promised to ensure the success of President Buhari's administration in all its policy implementation.

He said, "The Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF) is the engine room of government and we can't shy away from our responsibilities. We have the responsibility to ensure that this government succeeds and if it doesn't succeed it means we have not done our job.

"We are supposed to energise the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari so that the yearnings of citizens to live a better life will be achieved.

"I assure you that under my administration we are going to analyse our weaknesses and strengths and most importantly recover lost grounds."
