Chidoka named aviation minister, Oyeyemi becomes FRSC boss


Osita Chidoka


President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday named the former Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Mr. Osita Chidoka, as the new Minister of Aviation.
He also named a former lecturer at the University of Abuja, Dr. Suleman Abubakar, as the Minister of National Planning and Deputy Chairman of the National Planning Commission.
Jonathan made the announcement after the swearing in of the two new ministers shortly before the commencement of the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting.
The President also named Deputy Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi as Chidoka’s successor in the FRSC.
He urged the new government officials to ensure that they leave their footprints in the offices they were deployed in.
On Oyeyemi, Jonathan said he decided to appoint him from the commission in order to ensure stability.
This, he added, was a clear departure from what had been obtainable in the FRSC since its inception when its heads were appointed from outside the system.
