President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Abuja bade farewell to outgoing members of the Federal Executive Council, FEC, saying the departing Ministers would be replaced without delay.
The president affirmed that a significant number of them had been sufficiently equipped to aspire to higher elective offices, including the Office of the President.
Speaking at a valedictory session for appointees leaving the cabinet to pursue political ambitions, the President said:
“I do not doubt that if the next President emerges from among former members of this cabinet, like any other aspirant, ample competence and outstanding service delivery would be on display. This will be part of our legacies to Nigerians.”
He commended them for serving the nation sacrificially, “with dignity and honour”.
