Tinubu Appoints Umahi Works Minister, Wike FCT Minister, as President releases portfolio (Full list)

President Bola Tinubu has appointed the immediate-past governors of Rivers and Ebonyi States, Nyesom Wike and Dave Umahi, as Ministers of FCT, and Works, respectively.

The President has also appointed the immediate-past Jigawa State governor, Abubakar Badaru, as Minister of Defence, and Ms. Hannatu Musawa as Minister of Arts, Culture and Creative Industry.

Others include Lateef Fagbemi, SAN as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, while the immediate-past Osun State governor, Gboyega Oyetola, will serve as Minister of Transportation.

Meanwhile, the portfolio of the Minister of Environment and Ecological Management was reserved for Kaduna State, which has no ministerial nominee so far.

Also, the Presidency, which released the list of the ministerial portfolios on Wednesday evening, was silent on who is the substantive Minister of Petroleum Resources as it only listed Heineken Lolokpobri as Minister of State for the ministry, suggesting that President Tinubu might assume direct supervision of the Ministry reminiscent of the Buhari days.

The Voice reports that while the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs has been scrapped, others were renamed or split for administrative convenience.
