Reactions have continued to trail the swearing in of 45 ministers to a new cabinet by Nigerian President Bola Tinubu early in the week, with a task for them to get to grips with tackling the problems of sluggish growth, a weak currency and high inflation.
The country also faces widespread insecurity, including the theft of crude oil by criminal gangs.
The ceremony took place nearly three months after Tinubu took office on May 29 after winning a disputed presidential election in February which is being challenged by his main opponents in court.
For some analysts the new cabinet will have to confront sluggish growth, caused by a previous collapse in oil prices that weakened the currency, slashed government revenues and drove up inflation.
