Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, will today swear in two ministers-designate, Stephen Ocheni (Kogi) and Suleiman Hassan (Gombe) at the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
Special Assistant to Osinbajo on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, announced this via his twitter handle. Akande said that the inauguration of the ministers would precede the FEC meeting at the council’s chamber of the Presidential Villa.
“Ag. President Osinbajo would be swearing in the two new ministers already confirmed by the Senate tomorrow morning(today) at the start of the Federal Executive Council meeting’’ he said
Ocheni replaces late Minister of State for Labour, James Ocholi, who died in a ghastly auto-crash along Kaduna-Abuja highway in 2016, while Hassan takes the place of Amina Mohammed who has moved on to become the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations.
