Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan
President Umaru Yar’Adua swore Godsday Orubebe in today in Abuja as a minister.
Orubebe, from Delta State, was not allowed to take oath of office alongside the other ministers when Yar’Adua swore them in on July 26.
It was speculated then that he had questions to answer with the State Security Service (SSS).
Orubebe was accompanied to the presidential villa today by the Delta State governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan and Chief Edwin Clark, a prominent Niger Delta leader.
Uduaghan said after the swearing-in that Orubebe’s oath of office was delayed because of a political problem in Delta State, which had since been resolved.
