Tinubu to swear in three ministers-designate, preside over FEC meeting today

President Bola Tinubu will preside over his second Federal Executive Council meeting today.

The last Council meeting was held almost one and a half months ago on August 28, marking its inaugural session.

It is expected that the President will swear in the three newly appointed Ministers cleared by the senate two weeks ago.

The confirmed ministers-designate are Balarabe Lawal (Kaduna State), Ayodele Olawande (Ondo State), and Jamila Bio Ibrahim (Kwara State).

The three appointees already have ministries allocated to them oversee.

Barring last-minute change, while Jamila and Ayodele will be in charge of Youth Development Ministry as Minister and Minister of State, respectively, Balarabe will oversee the Ministry of Environment as Minister.

Also expected at the meeting is the FEC ratification of some projects recently approved by the President.
