Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole has retained his number one spot as the most effective minister in the Nigeria.
Adewole, who is a former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan claimed the position last week dislodging Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, who was the previous occupier of the position. The Health minister’s alertness and sense of urgency in the handling of the return of the Ebola Virus Disease is commendable.
On Thursday, Adewole through the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, issued a stern warning to Kenya Airways for bringing a corpse into the country from DR Congo – where the virus has reportedly killed three people.
While speaking, Idris, said, “The Federal Government of Nigeria and relevant agencies condemn this deliberate breach. In line with industry practice, a report has been made to the Nigerian Civil Aviation, the regulatory agency of the Nigerian aviation industry on the occurrence. Necessary steps are being taken by the regulatory authority to sanction the airline in a bid to prevent future occurrence.”
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) rose up two places this week. Malami’s rise is based on the decision of the executive to maintain stability in the chairmanship of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). While speaking on Thursday, Malami said the EFCC Act will be reviewed so as to “ensure that the frequent removal of the chairman of the agency becomes a thing of the past”.
