President Muhammadu Buhari has created new ministries and merged others as he assigned ministers to them.
He unbundled the Ministry of Power, Works, and Housing, which was one until Wednesday when he separated Power from the trio, leaving the Works and Housing Ministry as an entity.
While Babatunde Fashola headed the trio before, he will now head the last two. Sale Mamman is the new minister of power.
Buhari also merged the ministries of Finance, Budget, and National Planning; with Zainab Ahmed, who formerly headed the Finance Ministry, as the minister.
The Special Duties/International Affairs ministry was created, with ex-Benue Governor-turned-Senator, George Akume, as the minister.
