Few hours after the official resignation of the Minister of Environment Alhaji Usman Jubril, President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed the Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, Suleiman Hassan to step up to the ministerial post at the Environment Ministry following the resignation of, Alhaji Ibrahim Usman Jibril.
It will be recalled that Usman Jibril tendered his resignation letter yesterday during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja due to his recent appointment as the Emir of Nasarawa.
It was gathered that Hassan who hails from Gombe state, was mandated to takeover the Environment Ministry at yesterday’ FEC meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
A presidential source told newsmen last night that Hassan has been asked to immediately take charge of the Environment Ministry.
“Yes, it is the Minister of State Power, Works and Housing II, Suleiman Hassan that has been asked to takeover the Environment Ministry,” he said.
