Reminding them of the oath they took three weeks ago, he said they had to provide selfless service to the nation.

After confirmation of the appointment of the 43 ministers by the Senate and a two-day retreat in the Banquet Hall, on August 21, 2019, the president took an oath to the ministers.

After the oath, the President allowed the ministers a few weeks to familiarize themselves with their ministries.
