List of Newly Appointed Ministers and Their Portfolios

At last the Nigerian Federal Executive Council has been inaugurated.

Thirty-six ministers on Wednesday, took their oath of office, which automatically signaled the constitution of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.

In a group of four each, the ministers were called forward and the oath was administered on them. The inauguration of the cabinet comes six months after the President took over on May 29.

The President, after the swearing in, said that his administration would continue to implement policies that would improve the economy of the nation.

He added that the Federal Government would implement policies that will generate massive employment for youths and ensure food security.

He reiterated his determination to diversify the economy with agriculture becoming a major sector.

With assurances that the country would experience positive changes, President Muhammadu Buhari asked that all Nigerians “keep hope alive”.

He went further to announce the portfolios for all the ministers, contrary to expectations that some of the ministers would have no portfolios.
