President Umaru Yar’Adua on Tuesday appointed former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Ufot Ekaette, the head of the newly created Niger Delta Ministry along with a new finance chief, his office said.

Yar’Adua named Mansur Muktar of the African Development Bank as finance minister replacing Shamsudeen Usman, now at planning.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
