President Muhammadu Buhari’s seven ministerial nominees have all received Senate confirmation.
After being screened before the National Assembly’s upper chamber on Wednesday, they were officially announced. Ahmed Lawan, president of the Senate, oversaw the exercise.
The news broke a few days after President Buhari named the ministers and requested their confirmation in a letter to the Senate.
One minister each from the north-west, south-west, and south-south regions join the four newly confirmed ministers from four south-east states.
Henry Ikechukwu, Umana Okon Umana, Ekuma Joseph, Goodluck Nana Obia, Umar Ibrahim Yakub, Ademola Adewole Adegorioye, and Odo Udi are among the newly appointed officials from the states of Abia, Akwa-Ibom, Ebonyi, Imo, Kano, and Rivers.
They were chosen as a result of the resignation of certain cabinet members who left their positions to run for elective offices in the recently held APC primary elections (APC).
Rotimi Amaechi, a former governor of Rivers State, Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom, Ogbonnaya Onu, and Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba were among the ministers who left their positions to run for the APC presidential nomination, which none of them succeeded in doing.
