Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, again failed to swear in two confirmed Ministers, Stephen Ocheni (Kogi) and Suleiman Hassan (Gombe) on Wednesday.


Osinbajo is currently presiding over today’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting inside the Council Chambers of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Ocheni and Hassan were screened and confirmed by the Senate two weeks ago, but are yet to be sworn in.
Ministers are usually sworn in and assigned portfolios a week after their confirmation by the upper legislative chamber.
Ocheni is to replace the late James Ocholi who died over a year ago, while Hassan is to take over from Mrs Amina Mohammed, who resigned to become the United Nations Deputy Secretary General.

Osinbajo has been acting as president since May 7, when President Muhammadu Buhari headed for the UK for further medical check-ups.
