Ibrahim Usman Jibrin, Minister of State for Environment has resigned from the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The minister made his resignation known at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday.

Jibrin, became minister after former Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed had resigned in 2017 to take up United Nations job.

Jibrin, left his job as minister after he was elected as the new Emir of Nasarawa, in Nasarawa Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.

Jibrin was appointed Emir on Saturday, December 8.

The emergence of Jibril as the new emir, followed the death of Hassan Abubakar II, the 12th emir, who died earlier in November after a brief illness.

A valedictory session was held for him by other cabinet members before the close of the FEC meeting.

Buhari described the new traditional ruler as a “wise choice and worthy successor” saying Jibrin’s credentials as a public servant and land expert will be deployed to impact positively on the development of his emirate.

“His people will benefit immensely from his wealth of experience in the Ministry of Environment,” Buhari said in a congratulatory message.
