The former governor of Anambra state, Dr. Chris Ngige is still retaining his ministerial position. He is the minister of Labour and Employment. Meanwhile, ex-governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola who was the minister of power, works and housing has on Wednesday stripped off 'Power' from his portfolio and handed it over to Sale Mamman.

Recall that Nigeria Labour Congress, NCL, had asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to give Ngige the minister of Labour and Employment, noting that he has no knowledge of the position.
