The House of Representatives, on Tuesday, urged Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to swear the ministers- designate from Kogi and Gombe states within the next one week.
This is sequel to a motion moved under matters of urgent national importance at Tuesday’s plenary by Hon. Sunday Karimi and two others on the need for the acting president to swear in the ministers-designate and assign portfolio to them immediately.
Speaking on the motion, Karimu said contrary to the provision of the constitution that every state should be represented at the Federal Executive Council (FEC), Kogi and Gombe states were yet to be represented in the council.
Consequently, he said it was imperative for Osinbajo to swear in the two ministerial designates from the affected states and assign portfolio to them as a matter of urgency.
The ministerial slots for the two states became vacant following the death of James Ocholi from Kogi and the resignation of Amina Mohammed from Gombe.
