Photos From Swearing In Ceremony Of New SGF, NSA & Adesina

Yesterday, Monday, August 31, President Mohammadu Buhari swore in the newly appointed secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) Babachir David Lawal and others.
The swearing-in ceremony took place at the council chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Check out some of the photos from the event as Buhari is pictured with VP Osinbanjo, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal; National Security Adviser, Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.) Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina and others after their swearing in ceremony.
It was reported that Buhari did not comment on the uproar that his latest appointment caused after swearing in the new officials. He also did not give any remarks. But speaking on behalf of his colleagues, the SGF, Mr. Lawal, said they were not appointed because of their places of origin.

“We did not have to pass examination to get appointed into these positions,” he said. “(It was) not because of our tribes, or our faiths, or our political groups that we were considered worthy for these positions. “If it is such, I am sure none of us would have been considered worthy of these appointments. We appreciate the president and we appreciate God that he has blessed us with these privileged appointments,” Mr. Lawal said.
