The nomination of the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Osita Chidoka and a University of Abuja don, Dr. Abubakar Olanrewaju Sulieman as Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, was approved yesterday by the Senate.
Chidoka and Suleiman are expected to represent Anambra and Kwara States respectively, in the Federal Executive Council (FEC). The two states’ slot in the FEC became vacant following the dropping of Princess Stella Oduah first, followed by Bolaji Abdullahi.
Senate President David Mark, charged the two ministers to bring their youthfulness, vigour and new ideas to bear in the discharge of their assignments.
Mark said: “I urge this two confirmed nominees, that as young men, they should bring new ideas on board. They should not go there and fall in line without performing.
“We expect that they would perform because before us they have performed very well. So we hope that when they go there they would perform very well too”.
