PostSubject: Jonathan assigns portfolio to Obanikoro, seven others   Thu 19 Mar 2015, 6:16 am

President Goodluck Jonathan on
Wednesday inaugurated the eight
new ministers recently confirmed
by the Senate before the
commencement of the weekly
Federal Executive Council meeting.
The President thereafter assigned
portfolios to them as follows:
Senator Patricia Akwashiki
(Information); Prof. Nicholas Ada
(State, Foreign Affairs I); Senator
Musiliu Obanikoro (State, Foreign
Affairs II); Col. Augustine Akobundu
(retd.), (State, Defence); Mr. Fidelis
Nwankwo (State, Health); Mrs.
Hauwa Bappa (State, Niger Delta
Affairs); Mr. Kenneth Kobani (State,
Industry, Trade and Investment);
and Senator Joel Ikenya (Labour
and Productivity).
The President also named the
Minister of State, Health, Khaliru
Alhassan, as the Minister of Health.
Alhassan has been acting as
Supervising Minister of Health since
Prof. Onyebuchi Ckukwu resigned
in 2014.
Also inaugurated on Wednesday
were a Commissioner for the
Federal Civil Service Commission,
representing Plateau, Benue and
Nasarawa states, Dr. Jonah Madugu,
and a Commissioner for National
Population Commission, Mrs.
Abimbola Salu-Hundeyi, from Lagos
State.
Jonathan urged the new ministers
to be ready to work hard to justify
their appointment, which he said
was coming during his
administration’s “injury time.”
He said since the eyes of all
Nigerians would be on them, they
must be ready to put up
outstanding performances within
the short time available.
The President said, “For the
ministers, this is an injury time. It is
like bringing a player in when you
have just five minutes to go in a
football match.
“So everyone wants to know what
that player will do; the magic the
player will perform within that
short period. The player himself
will be struggling to, at least, kick
the ball before the end of the
game.
“So, you are coming in at a quite
challenging period and I believe
that a number of people will not
envy you because government is
coming to a close. But sometimes,
it is even good to come at this time
because you are now well exposed
to Nigerians.
“Everybody will be watching your
dancing steps and we believe you
will dance well.”
While describing the civil service as
the engine room of government,
Jonathan admitted that the
greatest problem of the sector had
been indiscipline.
He urged the new commissioner to
join others to modernise the
service.
He also described census as critical
to national planning, urging Salu-
Hudeyin to contribute her quota to
the success of the NPC.
