Buhari orders SGF, ministers to prepare transition documents, 7 months to tenure expiration


President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) to continue with the quarterly review process and assessment of ministries for the third and fourth quarters of 2022, saying the reports will form part of the transition documents of his administration to the incoming government.

The president gave the directive on Tuesday at the closing ceremony of the 2022 Ministerial Performance Review Retreat, preceded by his signing of Executive Order 012 on Improving Performance Management, Coordination and Implementation of Presidential Priorities.


He ordered all ministers and permanent secretaries to ensure that the performance reports of their ministries were submitted on a quarterly basis to the Office of the SGF for review by the Central Delivery Coordination Unit to achieve the objective.

“The outcome of these reviews would be made available for my consideration,” he also said.

President Buhari also warned ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies not to abandon the business of governance for electioneering, saying “any infraction will be viewed seriously.”


He told participants at the retreat that with the commencement of campaigns towards the 2023 general elections, the business of governance must continue to receive the needed attention.

“Consequently, all ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of agencies must remain focused in the discharge of their duties, as any infraction will be viewed seriously.

“Our collective goal is to map out a transition plan for the incoming administration to ensure proper documentation of all the policies, programmes and projects of government with an up-to-date status of implementation,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has praised the Buhari-led administration for creating “lasting legacies” for the country and promised to remain a friend and ally of the president even after his tenure in 2023.


The APC presidential candidate stated this on Tuesday at the ongoing 3-day ministerial retreat for ministers and permanent secretaries in Abuja.

He said the efforts made by the Buhari administration to set the country on the right path “after years of maladministration” would never be forgotten by Nigerians even a long time after they have left.

In a statement from his media office signed by Tunde Rahman, Tinubu said, “Thank you, President Buhari and may I say thank you on behalf of all Nigerians to your entire administration, represented by all present today.


“We supported you before your first day in office. I will remain your friend and ally even after your final day at the job.”
