 FG issues statement on how Nigerians should address President Buhari henceforth - Read



The federal government has released a statement educating Nigerians  on how best  President Buhari should be addressed at formal functions henceforth.

Boss Mustapha,  Secretary to the Government of the Federation gave the directive in a circular sent to ministries, departments and agencies of the federal government.

According to the circular sent 

“Government has observed with concern the inconsistent manner in which the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria is addressed during Official and Private functions. It has therefore become necessary to have a standard format for addressing him at such formal occasions. To this end, Mr. President shall henceforth be addressed as ‘‘MUHAMMADU BUHARI, PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.’’ except in purely Armed Forces Programmes, where “COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES OF FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA” will be added. All concerned persons should accordingly be guided and ensure strict compliance with the contents of this Circular.”
