President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday in Abuja swore in two ministers. The ministers are Prof. Chinedu Nebo, who hails from Enugu State and Kabiru Turaki from Kebbi State. Jonathan said that the two ministers were chosen due to their capacity to perform and deliver tangible results. As Mr. President put it, their appointment is meant to inject new ideas into the Federal Executive Council. “Today, we are admitting two new ministers into our fold and the synopsis we have heard about them they are eminently qualified to serve this country at all levels. If it political they are eminently qualified to serve as councilors up to the president of the Federal Republic by their antecedents.
“But then background qualification is one thing, serving as a minister is another thing because the challenges are different”. Thereafter, the President warned them never to disappoint Nigerians, whom he said, had been yearning for good government and democratic dividends. After exhortations, President Jonathan, who congratulated the ministers, directed them to report to the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation for their letters of posting.
