President Goodluck Jonathan, Monday, swore in two new ministers into the Federal Executive council.

The new ministers, Chinedu Osita Nebo (Enugu) and Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (Kebbi), replaced the former Ministers of Power and Defence, Barth Nnaji and Haliru Bello Mohammed respectively who had earlier exited the cabinet last year.

President Jonathan who likened their introduction midway into his government to changes made by a football coach in a game charged them to justify their introduction by bringing about changes in their various ministries. A formal inauguration of the new ministers would hold on Wednesday at the federal Executive Council meeting.

President Goodluck Jonathan told the new ministers that Nigerians would judge his coaching abilities by the new innovations  they would  bring into the federal cabinet.

Present at the swearing in were the Deputy Senate President, Senate Majority Leader, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives , ministers and families members  of the newly sworn in ministers.
