Ministerial List: Edo the only State in South-South with Two Ministerial Positions, Another Milestone for Oshiomhole By Osademe Lucyiano


The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress Comrade Adams
Oshiomhole has broke the record of his predecessor, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, the immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress.

The long awaited ministerial list released by President Mohammadu
Buhari on 23rd July, 2019 after two months of his inauguration
contained the names of two illustrious sons of Edo State – Dr. Osagie Ehanire and Mr. Clement Agba.

This is apparently the first time in the history of the State, Edo is having two ministerial positions and it is therefore the only State in the South-South and in the Niger Delta with two ministerial positions.

Below is the ministerial list breakdown according to geo-political zones:
