#Sit-up, Buhari Tells his Ministers


BARELY 19 months to the end of his administration, President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday directed ministers and permanent secretaries to redouble their efforts and work in synergy toward total delivery of the set target to improve livelihood of all Nigerians.

He gave the directive at the end of the two-day mid-term ministerial performance review retreat at the Old banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The President also instructed the ministers to ‘‘ramp up implementation’’ of their mandates along the nine priority areas of his government, and stressed the need for synergy between the fiscal and monetary authorities in the country to keep the economy on the trajectory of growth.

Buhari noted that intensive discussions at the retreat provided an opportunity to reflect on what the administration had done and areas it needed to improve and refocus attention.

He said:  ‘‘The retreat provided an opportunity for us to undertake an objective assessment of our stewardship, in line with the contract we signed with the Nigerian people to deliver on our electoral promises.
