New SGF, Boss Mustapha, Issues Out His First Very Powerful Directive, Hits The Ground Running Immediately After Taking Oath Of Office

The new Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha, has described the term ‘Your Excellency’, an appellation commonly used in Nigeria, as unconstitutional.

He also said he would prefer to be addressed simply as ‘The SGF’, without the prefix of ‘Your Excellency’.

Boss Mustapha stated this as he received handover documents from former Acting SGF, Habitat Lawal.

He described some nomenclatures used to glorify high offices in Nigeria, as banana peels.

“I will make a passionate appeal. I do not know where you people get this ‘Your Excellency’ from. Some of the nomenclatures are banana peels.

“I often hear people say, ‘Executive Governor’; I say look at the Constitution, there is nothing like the Executive Governor. It is Governor of a State”, Mustapha said.

According to him, when political office holders begin to apply the Executive tag, they begin to softly conceptualise the people to take absolute authority.

“I want to simply be addressed as SGF please”, Mustapha told those in attendance at the brief ceremony.

“I do not claim any superior experience or skills, other than the grace of God”, he added.
