President Muhammadu Buhari advised cabinet not to waist public funds, to enable the current administration lift a good number of Nigerian out of poverty.

He made this recommendation on Thursday, November 5, at the old banquet hall of the presidential villa in Abuja, while speaking the two-day retreat for the 36 ministers ahead of their official swearing in.

The President asked the ministers to help the present administration make and administer the change to Nigerians.

He advised the ministers to ensure effective communication with their colleagues and to run all communication and appointments to the presidency through the Office of the Chief of Staff “as is normal in this Presidential System”.
