President Bola Tinubu has redeployed minister-designate Gboyega Oyetola from the Ministry of Transportation to the Ministry of Marine and Blue Economy.

Also, he redeployed Abubakar Momoh from the Ministry of Youth to the Ministry of Niger Delta Development.

“The Federal Ministry of Youth is to be re-assigned to a Minister-Designate soon,” said presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale in a statement on Sunday night.

The changes take immediate effect, said the presidential spokesman.

According to Ngelale, Tinubu also redeployed minister-designate, Bunmi Tunji-Ojo, to the Ministry of Interior while Sa’idu Alkali was redeployed as the Minister of Transportation.

The statement added, “Furthermore, both Ministers of State in the Oil & Gas sector are now domiciled in the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources with the following designations:

“(i) Sen. Heineken Lokpobiri is the Hon. Minister of State (Oil), Petroleum Resources

“(ii) Hon. Ekperipe Ekpo is the Hon. Minister of State (Gas), Petroleum Resources

“The President approves the renaming of the Federal Ministry of Environment and Ecological Management as the Federal Ministry of Environment.”

This comes amid outrage over the Niger Delta ministry which hitherto had no minister-designate assigned to it.
