The leadership of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo state council, has congratulated the duo of Dr. Osagie Ehanire on his appointment as minister of health and Hon. Clement Agba as minister of state for budget and national planning.
The union also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for finding the two Edo sons worthy for ministerial slots.
These were contained in a statement signed by its chairman, Sir Roland Osakue, and secretary, Comrade Titus Akhigbe.
The statement noted that the re-appointment of Ehanire as minister was a clear indication that President Buhari must have been impressed by his achievements in the same ministry in his first term.
The union, however, admonished Osagie and Agba to see the appointments as a call to national service and urged them to strive hard to use their positions in the federal cabinet to attract development to the state.
The council also noted Agba’s massive contributions to the development of Edo as commissioner for environment and public utilities under the last administration of the Comrade Governor, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole.
