Ministers’ Swearing-In Ceremony Holds at Presidential Villa


The inauguration of the 45 confirmed ministers-designate is currently underway at the Conference Centre of the State House, Abuja.

The event, presided over by President Bola Tinubu, is being held at the banquet hall of the presidential villa.

The president had asked the senate to confirm 48 ministerial nominees but only 45 were cleared.

Nasir el-Rufai, former governor of Kaduna; Stella Okotete (Delta) and Danladi Abubakar (Taraba) were not confirmed as the senate had not received security clearance about them during the confirmation hearing.

The 45 successful ministers-designate completed their documentation at the weekend as part of the fulfillments ahead of their swearing-in as cabinet members.

Five of the ministers have just taken their oath of office before the president at the time of reporting.
