She is expected to resume office on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
At the meeting, which took place at the council chambers of the Presidential Villa, the outgoing Minister was described as a role model to Nigerian women by the Acting President, Mr Yemi Osinbajo, who chaired the occasion.
In her remarks, the Minister thanked the Federal Government for the opportunity given to her to serve her fatherland and promised to make Nigeria proud at the global organisation.
