Valentine Chinyem



Hours after the inauguration of new ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Wednesday, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has confessed that he lacked knowledge of how the ministry in charge of internal security operates.

Aregbesola said this while addressing officials of the ministry, after the portfolio was assigned to him.

The former Osun State Governor added  that he had no idea of its policies and operations of the ministry.

He said, “My relationship with the ministry is distant. What I know about the ministry is what I read in the newspapers.

“I will officially assume duties on Monday. I give the Permanent Secretary the grace to run the ministry till then. We will be ready by Monday to take on the huge assignment.”
