Just In: Osinbajo Assigns Portfolios To New Ministers

Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Wednesday assigned portfolios to the two Ministers he sworn in three weeks ago at the Presidential Villa.

Stephen Ocheni and Suleiman Hassan were sworn in in May, several weeks after they were confirmed by the Senate, due to President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence.

According to Osinbajo, Ocheni will resume as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Labour and Productivity.
