The recently appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), George Akume, has made a commitment to President Bola Tinubu to work diligently and avoid any letdowns. President Tinubu administered Akume’s oath of office in the council chamber on Wednesday, with several government officials present.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the ceremony, the new SGF promised to discharge his duties in the interest of Nigerians.
“I assure Nigerians I will do my best, I will not disappoint the President, I will not disappoint this country and I will not disappoint my party.
“I believe Nigerians will find fulfillment in my responsibilities as I discharge that in their own interest. It is an honour to serve the country and I am strongly persuaded that guided by Almighty God, I will do my best and Nigerians will really have to reap the dividends of democracy”, Akume said.
After the ceremony, in an interview with State House correspondents, the new SGF assured the public that he would carry out his responsibilities in the best interests of Nigerians. He expressed his dedication to the President, the nation, and his political party, affirming that he would not falter.

He considered it a great honor to serve the country and expressed his strong belief that, guided by the Almighty, he would perform to the best of his abilities, leading to tangible benefits for the Nigerian people.
