Ocheni replaces the late Minister of State for Labour, Mr James Ocholi, who died in a ghastly auto-crash along Kaduna-Abuja highway in 2016.
Hassan, on the other hand, takes the place of Amina Mohammed, who resigned her appointment to take up the job of Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations.
While swearing in the new members of the federal executive council, Osinbajo challenged them to actively participate in the task of turning around the nation’s economy and making life better for all Nigerians.
He stated that the Federal Executive Council is committed to implementing its far-reaching reform programmes as contained in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan and other such documents.
