Tinubu swears in two NPC commissioners

President Bola Tinubu on Monday sworn in two additional federal commissioners of the National Population Commission, NPC.

Those sworn in are Fasuwa Johnson Johnson (Ogun State) and Amidu Tadese Raheem (Osun State).

The swearing-in ceremony took place at the Council Chamber of the State House, Abuja, just before the commencement of the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting.

Their swearing-in came weeks after 17 of their colleagues took the oath of office in March.

Meanwhile, the FEC, which is currently ongoing, also observed a minute’s silence in honour of two former ministers; one-time minister of education, Professor Fabian Osuji, and former Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, before going into closed doors.

Osuji died at the age of 82 in February. He served as minister of education during the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo while Onu died at the age of 72 and was appointed Minister of Science and Technology during the tenure of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
