Minister of state for environment Ibrahim Usman Jibrin has resigned his portfolio after emerging Emir of Nasarawa.
He tendered his resignation on Wednesday at the ongoing Federal Executive Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
A valedictory session was held for him.
At the start of the meeting, Buhari referred to Jibrin as “Your Highness”, causing general laughter in the council chamber.
Jibrin was appointed as the Minister of State for Environment in December 2015 when the council was constituted after a senate screening and confirmation.
