According to him, the appointment is part of his administration’s efforts to reform and strengthen the service for optimal performance.
The new permanent secretaries, he said, need to brace up to meet public expectations.

The new permanent secretaries are Timothy Olatunji, Samuel Adeogun, Mrs Moriamo Oloko and Wasiu Kuye.
