President Muhammadu Buhari has sworn-in seven new Ministers, who now replace former ones that resigned their appointments in May to contest for various political offices.
The swearing-in ceremony took place on Wednesday at the Council chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Their nomination followed the vacuum created by the resignation of some former Ministers like Rotimi Amaechi, Uche Oga, Godswill Akpabio and Ogbonnaya Onu among others, who resigned to pursue various political ambitions.Photo Source: Google
Pastor Giwa Issues Fresh Warning To PDPNews Source: Daily Post Nigeria
A popular Nigerian cleric, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has said for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to win the forthcoming general election, the stance on the Governor of Rivers State must be reconsidered.
Giwa who is the Senior Pastor of the Awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ Ministry, Akure, Ondo State, warned that shoving Wike who emerged second during the primary of the party aside portends danger for the party in the 2023 poll.
Pastor Giwa said if Wike had become the running mate to Atiku, the election would be an easy ride for PDP, stressing that it was never too late for the party and its candidate to reconsider the move.
While emphasising that Wike has paid his dues enormously to the party, Giwa said Atiku’s running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa is not in the same political status as Wike.
He added that the political career of Atiku lies with Wike which could mar his ambition if not properly handled.
Asari Dokubo Lambasts Peter ObiNews Source: Leadership News
Ex-militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has lambasted the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, saying the former Anambra State governor would not emerge president in 2023.
He challenged Obi to show his track record in changing the fortunes of Anambra State in terms of infrastructural development as governor, rather than claiming he saved money.
He stated that Obi invested the state’s money in his personal businesses while claiming he saved the money in the bank.
Dokubo also said Peter Obi is a scammer and liar, adding he did not hold local government elections for seven years in Anambra.
