Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is set to swear in two ministers.

According to the Presidency, Professor Stephen Nkani Ocheni (Kogi State) and Mr Suleiman Zana Hassan (Gombe State), will be sworn in on Wednesday morning before the Federal Executive Council meeting.

The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Acting President, Mr Laolu Akande, confirmed this on Tuesday night.

The swearing-in ceremony comes more than two months after the Senate confirmed the nomination of Ocheni and Hassan as ministers.

President Buhari had nominated both men to replace the late Minister of State for Labour, James Ocholi, and ex-Minister of the Environment, Amina Mohammed, who left the cabinet to become the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations.
