Nigerian president appoints more Cabinet ministers
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan named career diplomat Olugbenga Ashiru as foreign minister and respected engineer Bart Nnaji as power minister among several Cabinet appointments late on Monday.
Ashiru has served as a diplomat for almost three decades and was recently Nigeria's high commissioner in South Africa. Nnaji was the head of a company that built a major power distribution plant in a country suffering from chronic electricity shortages.
