It took the combined team of three Presidential spokespersons to confirm that two ministers who are to be Kogi and Gombe states representatives in the Federal Executive Council, FEC would be sworn in on Wednesday.
The Senate had in April screened and confirmed Stephen Ocheni and Suleiman Hassan as ministers, following their nomination by President Muhammadu Buhari in March.
The information on the inauguration of the ministers was provided by three presidential spokespersons, Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu and Laolu Akande at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday.
At the inception of the Buhari administration in 2015, it was noted that he had more than enough hands in the media department without constituting an economic team. Consequently, the hitherto robust economy handed over to him at an inflation rate of less than 9.2 percent soon ballooned to over 19 percent in a matter of few months with the country sliding into an unprecedented recession in thirty five years.
It took the President six months to constitute an Executive Council of Ministers, what took President Emmanuel Macron of France a few hours and the Canadian leader Mr. Justin Trudeau, one day.
