President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday appointed Festus Keyamo as the Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs.
Recall that Naija News had reported that President Buhari swore-in and assigned portfolios to his 43 Ministers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President had appointed Godswill Akpabio as Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, while Festus Keyamo was named the Minister of State for the same ministry.
Keyamo upon his resumption on Thursday stated that he is ready to experience his new position as minister of state for Niger Delta.
He added that he would not be in charge of his law firm due to the new assignment before him which will see him take a break from law practice.
Keyamo on his Twitter account wrote, “Arrived my new office punctually this morning, which is key to motivate the workforce. It is a new challenge which I always wanted to experience.”
“Whilst my law offices continue to run at full throttle with capable hands, I take this short leave of absence to serve my fatherland.”
