Nigerians have been asked by newly appointed Minister of Power, Saleh Mamman to pray for success in his new role.
Mamman was announced as the new Power Minister when President Muhammadu Buhari inaugurated his second term cabinet in Abuja on Wednesday, August 21, 2019.
Mamman made this call while speaking later during a reception organised in his honour by a committee of friends, the minister asked Nigerians to pray for him.
“What I need from Nigerians at this time is prayers. I have just been appointed Minister of Power, so I have nothing much to talk about or say than for Nigerians to pray for me to succeed,” he said.
Mamman replaces former Lagos governor, Babatunde Fashola, who was returned for another stint in the cabinet, but as the Minister of Works and Housing only.
