FULL LIST: Tinubu appoints Wike FCT Minister, Keyamo, aviation
President Bola Tinubu has appointed Nyesom Wike, former governor of Rivers state, as the minister of the federal capital territory (FCT).
Wike is the second southerner to head the FCT after Ajose Adeogun, the only person from the region, who was appointed in 1976.
In a list released by Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Tinubu appointed Gboyega Oyetola, former governor of Osun, as the minister of transportation.
He also appointed Festus Keyamo as the minister of aviation and aerospace development.
The list shows that the north-west has 10 ministers, while north-east has six. The north-central and south-west have eight and nine ministers respectively, while south-east and south-south have five each.
According to the portfolios assigned by the president, Tinubu made Bosun Tijani the minister of communications, innovations and digital economy and Wale Edun the person heading the ministry of finance and coordinating minister of economy.
On July 27, Tinubu forwarded a list of 28 nominees to the senate for screening and confirmation.
Again, on August second, the president sent the list of the second batch of ministerial nominees to the senate for screening.
While the senate confirmed the nomination of 45 persons on the list, three nominees, including Nasir el-Rufai, former governor of Kaduna — Stella Okotete (Delta) and Danladi Abubakar (Taraba), were not confirmed due to issues relating to security clearance.
Ngelale said a retreat for the ministerial appointees will hold next week after which they will be sworn-in.
