The Federal Government has issued new directive on how President Muhammadu Buhari should be addressed at formal functions.

A circular signed and sent to Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha indicates that Mr Buhari, a retired major general, is not to be addressed by that military rank at formal functions.

“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.
