Acting President Yemi Osinbajo did not swear in the two Ministers Stephen Ocheni (Kogi) and Suleiman Hassan (Gombe) during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) yesterday.
Ocheni and Hassan had been screened and confirmed by the Senate last week but are yet to be sworn in.
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.
Yesterday’s FEC meeting which began at 10am and lasted three hours, was attended by majority of the Ministers and other cabinet members.
President Muhammadu Buhari was absent, after leaving for the UK on Sunday night for further medical check-ups.
