Ibrahim Usman Jibrin resigns as the Minister of State for Environment following his selection as the 13th Emir of Nasarawa Town in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the State by the Nasarawa Emirate Council.
He announced his resignation during the Federal Executive Council meeting held at the State House in Abuja which was presided over by President Mohammed Buhari on Wednesday and a valedictory session was held in his honour.
Jibrin vividly stated that the reason for his resignation was because he was selected as the 13th Emir of Nasarawa Town in Nasarawa LGA of the State by the Nasarawa Emirate Council.
Jibrin had been the ministry of environment since the exit of the former minister, Amina Mohammed. His emergence as the Emir was announced on Thursday by the state commissioner for local governments and chieftaincy affairs, Illiya Osegba, at the government house in Lafia.
