President Muhammadu Buhari officially swore in his new cabinet today.
DENISAURUS News had previously done a prediction on who would be on the list.
In the prediction made on 29 May, it was stated that Abubakar Malami, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, would return as the Attorney General of Federation and Minister of Justice. We were right!
The editor of the paper noted then that there was a chance there would be a new Minister of Petroleum and that the fate of the Minister of State for Petroleum, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu was not known.
The new Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva is not an unknown name. Mr Sylva, 55 was a former Governor of Bayelsa.
The new cabinet also includes Sharon Ikeazor, Sunday Dare, Festus Keyamo and Ali Pantami.
