Full list of President Buhari’s ministers and their portfolios

President Buhari’s Ministers
Barely six months after coming to power, President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, finally assigned portfolios to his ministers-designates at the Ministerial Inauguration that took place at the Presidential Villa.

Thirty-six ministers took their oath of office, which automatically signaled the constitution of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.



The President, after the swearing in, said that his administration would continue to implement policies that would improve the economy of the nation.

He added that the Federal Government would implement policies that will generate massive employment for youths and ensure food security.

He reiterated his determination to diversify the economy with agriculture becoming a major sector.

With assurances that the country would experience positive changes, President Muhammadu Buhari asked that all Nigerians “keep hope alive”.

He went further to announce the portfolios for all the ministers, contrary to expectations that some of the ministers would have no portfolios.

There are ministers for 24 ministries with Ministers of State to make up the remaining portfolios.

The highlight was his announcement that he would take charge as the substantive Minister of Petroleum.
