Jonathan tasks new Ministers on changes

By BEN agande

Abuja—Two new ministers were yesterday sworn into the Federal Executive Council by President Goodluck Jonathan in what he said was an injection of new members to the council that is expected to up the ante in governance.

The new ministers, Chinedu Osita Nebo (Enugu) and Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (Kebbi), replaced the former Ministers of Power and Defence, Barth Nnaji and Haliru Bello Mohammed respectively, who exited the cabinet last year.

President Jonathan, who likened their introduction midway into his government to changes made by a football coach in a game, charged them to justify their introduction by bringing about changes in their various ministries.
