Ahead of Monday’s inauguration, all the 45 ministers-designate on Sunday completed their documentation process, which started on Saturday, at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

BusinessDay gathered that with the documentation process completed, the stage is now set for the swearing-in of the ministers.

Willie Bassey, director of Information, office of the SGF speaking with BusinessDay in Abuja, at the end of the process, described the process as “seamless as there were four registration points and it took each minister less than ten minutes to complete the process.

“Also, invitation cards for each of the three guests of the ministers-designate were successfully given to each minister for onward delivery to their invited guests.”

“We have made arrangements for live telecasts and all other Nigerians interested in watching the event can do from the comfort of their homes,” he said.
