President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed the Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, Suleiman Hassan, to take charge of the Environment Ministry, following the resignation of Alhaji Ibrahim Usman Jibril.
It was gathered that Hassan who hails from Gombe State, was mandated to take over the Environment Ministry.
A Presidential source revealed that Hassan has been asked to immediately take charge of the Environment Ministry.
“Yes, it is the Minister of State Power, Works and Housing II, Suleiman Hassan, that has been asked to take over the Environment Ministry”, he said.
Recall, that Jibril’s resignation came days after his emergence as the new Emir of Nasarawa.
Jibril was appointed as the Minister of State for Environment, in December 2015, when the Council was constituted, after a Senate screening and confirmation.
