Tears as FEC Holds Valedictory Session for Amina Mohammed

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

A valedictory session was on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, held for the out-going Minister of Environment, Mrs Amina Mohammed, at the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.

Colleagues of Mrs Mohammed could not fight back tears as they bid her goodbye and wish her well in her new role as the Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations.

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.

Mr Mohammed was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as Minister in 2015.
