Senate clears two ministers

The two ministerial nominees sent to the senate by President Muhammadu Buhari last month were Wednesday confirmed by the upper legislative chamber.

The ministers were from Benue and Gombe states.

They are Professor Stephen Nkani Ocheni (Kogi State) and Mr. Suleiman Zana Hassan (Gombe State).

Ocheni is the replacement for the late Ocholi who died in a ghastly motor accident along the Abuja-Kaduna highway while Hassan replaces Amina Mohammed who left President Buhari cabinet as Minister for environment to serve in the UN.
