In line with this reshuffle, Abubakar Momoh has been strategically redeployed from his former post at the Federal Ministry of Youth to take the helm at the Ministry of Niger Delta Development. This decisive move reflects the administration’s unwavering commitment to addressing the developmental imperatives and challenges in the Niger Delta region. In addition, Adegboyega Oyetola has been selected to steer the ship as the new Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, a position brimming with potential for the exploration and sustainable harnessing of the nation’s maritime resources.

Ngelale, in his statement, emphasized that the now-vacant post at the Federal Ministry of Youth, due to Abubakar Momoh’s reassignment, will soon be occupied by a new minister-designate, who will be entrusted with its mandates and initiatives.

Two other prospective cabinet members have undergone significant reconfigurations. Bunmi Tunji-Ojo is set to shoulder the crucial responsibilities of the Ministry of Interior, signifying a focused approach to matters concerning internal security and national unity. On a parallel track, Hon. Sa’idu Alkali will take the reins of the Ministry of Transportation, a pivotal role in the government’s ongoing drive to enhance the nation’s transportation infrastructure and connectivity.

In an intriguing twist, Ngelale unveiled that both Ministers of State in the Oil & Gas sector will now operate under the aegis of the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources, a strategic move to ensure a more streamlined approach to overseeing this critical sector. Senator Heineken Lokpobiri has been entrusted with the role of Minister of State (Oil), Petroleum Resources, while Ekperipe Ekpo steps into the position of Minister of State (Gas), Petroleum Resources. This harmonization is poised to bolster the government’s management of the oil and gas industry, a cornerstone of Nigeria’s economy.

As part of these changes, the president has officially approved the renaming of the Federal Ministry of Environment and Ecological Management, christening it the Federal Ministry of Environment. These adjustments, as explicitly outlined in the statement, have been set into motion immediately, under the direct guidance of the President himself. This bold and decisive move by the administration underscores a resolute commitment to optimizing the governmental structure and ensuring a cohesive and unified approach to addressing the nation’s challenges.
