President Muhammadu Buhari, had earlier today, August 21, 2019, assigned portfolios to all the 43 ministers appointed for his second tenure in office.
The president read out the portfolios while delivering his speech at the Swearing-In Ceremony in the State House, Abuja.
As expected, the portfolios has attracted mixed and diverse reactions from Nigerians on the social media space. While some are happy with some of the appointments, others are critical of some of them especially with the portfolios that were assigned to some of them.
See reactions below.
Akpabio – minister, Niger Delta
Sylva – Petroleum
Aregbesola – Interior
Sabo – Agriculture
Sali Muhammad – Power
Let’s see the effect of leaving only works & housing with Fashola #BuhariCabinet

Festus Keyamo said he would Unbundle the Supreme Court during his ministerial screening by the Senate. Obviously, the cabal think that’s exuberant. So, they shipped him to be Minister of State for Niger Delta, to pacify regional agitations with constitutionality.#BuhariCabinet
