Nigeria’s former Minister for Environment, Amina Mohammed, has been officially sworn in as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations at the headquarters in New York.

She took her oath of office from the Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, who appointed her as his deputy in December last year. She, however, returned to wrap up her work as Minister in Nigeria and hand over her portfolio.

She was present at the United Nations headquarters when her boss took his oath of office. She attended her last government meeting in Abuja where the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, thanked her for her work.
