The nominees who answered questions from the senators on the state of the nation, agreed that an urgent review of the country’s education curriculum remained the best way to tackle unemployment, poverty and insurgency.

Senate President, David Mark, congratulated the new appointees and urged them to see themselves as ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who are not in office to satisfy their party and sectional interests.

The new Ministers were appointed following the resignation of some former Ministers to include Yerima Ngama, former Minister of state for Finance; Caleb Olubolade, former Minister of police affairs; and Godsday Orubebe, former Minister of the Niger Delta Affairs.
