Nigerians still need your services, Tinubu, Osinbajo, Jonathan, others tell Ex-SGF
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has told former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, that Nigerians still need his services in a higher capacity.
Speaking at a Thanksgiving Service organised for Mustapha in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, yesterday, the president said the former SGF discomforted his family to provide effective services to the country.
The president, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sen. George Akume, pointed out that the former SGF was not only a transparent leader but also helped to unite the country through his unbiased decisions.
He said the Mustapha should be expecting to serve Nigerians in a higher capacity in the nearest future.
Also speaking at the event, former president Goodluck Jonathan, who was represented by Dr. Godbless Erunia, said that Mustapha was the engine room that stabilised the immediate past government.
He urged Nigerians to emulate the selfless services provided by the former SGF to ensure that the country becomes free from corruption and other issues holding it down.
The former vice president Yemi Osinbanjo, who was represented by Babajide Ojudu, described Mustapha as a role model that Nigerian youths should emulate, saying doing so would enhance their chances of going up the ladder of leadership.
The Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, who organised the Thanksgiving Service, commended Mustapha for making the state proud through the corruption-free services he offered to the nation.
Fintiri also urged Mustapha to start preparing himself to offer higher services to the country.
Other speakers at the occasion, including clergymen and royal fathers, commended the former SGF for providing services that the country needed to be on the development lane.
In his remarks, Mustapha who went down memory lane, described his mother as a disciplinarian who trained him to be disciplined in financial management and human relationship.
He thanked those that graced the occasion, urging Nigerians to support the present administration to ensure that democracy succeeds in the country.
