As the minister turns 59, President Buhari affirms the loyal and noble roles of Prince Agba as a member of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) since August, 2019, where he has supervised national planning, early budget submission to the National Assembly and strengthening the Department of Monitoring and Evaluation in order to effectively drive the National Monitoring and Evaluation process.
President Buhari notes the kindheartedness of the minister, who set up the The Clem Agba Foundation (TCAF) to cater for the needs of vulnerable members of society, with great impact on funding of education and health for many.
The President prays that the Almighty God will uphold Prince Agba and his family.
