President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday swore in seven new Ministers who have been screened and confirmed by the Senate.

The swearing-in at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) was done in two batches of four and three each.

The first set was Henry Ikechukwu Ikoh – Abia State, Umana Okon Umana – Akwa Ibom State, Odum Odih – Rivers State, and Ademola Adewole Adegoroye – Ondo State.

The second batch included Umar Ibrahim El-Yakub – Kano State, Goodluck Nnana Opiah – Imo State, and Egwumakama Joseph Nkama – Ebonyi State.

11 ministerial positions are affected by the reshuffle.

Below is the list of the ministers’ new portfolios:

1. Adeleke Mamora – Minister of Science and Technology (formerly Minister of State, Health)

2. Mu’azu Jaji Sambo – Minister of Transportation (formerly Minister of Power)

3. Umanna Okon Umanna – Minister of Niger Delta

4. Sharon Ikeazor – Minister of State, Niger Delta (formerly Minister of State, Environment)

5. Gbemisola Saraki – Minister of State, Mines and Steel Development (formerly minister of state, Transportation)

6. Umar Ibrahim EI-Yakub – Minister of State, Works and Housing

7. Goodluck Nanah Opiah – Minister of State, Education

8. Ekumankama Joseph Nkama – Minister of State, Health

9. Ikoh Henry Ikechukwu – Minister of State, Science and Technology

10. Odum Udi – Minister of State, Environment

11. Ademola Adewole Adegoroye – Minister of State, Transportation

Before the swearing-in, a minute’s silence was observed in honour of Mohammed Barkindo, the 4th Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Secretary-General, who died at the age of 63 on Tuesday.

Last Tuesday, the Senate eventually received the list of seven nominees from Buhari for consideration and confirmation as Ministers.

They will replace Ministers who resigned in May 2022 to pursue their political ambition.

The new Ministers will now join the Buhari administration which has less than one year left in office.
