PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, November 11, formally allotted portfolios to 36 men and women who would work in his cabinet. Prominent among them is Babatunde Fashola, SAN, a former governor of Lagos State, whom he named minister of Power, Works and Housing.

The ministry is a merger of three ministries: Power, Works as well as Housing, Land and Urban Development.

On the other hand, President Buhari gave Chibuike Amaechi, former controversial governor of Rivers State, a less controversial ministry by naming him minister of Transportation.

Unsurprisingly, Lai Mohammed, national publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress, APC, was named minister of Information.

As earlier indicated, the president named himself as the substantive minister of Petroleum.

The full list of ministers is as follows:
