Nigerian senate confrims new ministers

The Senate on Wednesday afternoon confirmed former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, as a minister.

Mr. Shekarau was confirmed alongside others nominated by President Goodluck Jonathan.

The other nominees confirmed are Abu Bulama from Yobe State, Stephen Oru from Delta State, and Adedayo Adeyeye from Ekiti State.

Mr Oru was the National Vice Chairman, South South of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, while Adedayo Adeyeye is a leader of the party in Ekiti.

The new ministers were appointed following the resignations of some former ministers such as Yerima Ngama, former minister of state for finance; Caleb Olubolade, former minister of police affairs; and Godsday Orubebe, former minister of Niger Delta Affairs.

Mr. Shekarau, a founding member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, decamped to the PDP after the former’s structure in Kano was handed to the incumbent governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, who had decamped from the PDP to the APC.

The new ministers would now be sworn-in by the president and positions assigned to them.
