“If there is anything on this that is released officially, we will let Nigerians know.

“I am pleased to know that she enjoys so much goodwill.’’

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that social and traditional media outfits had reported that Amina Mohammed is set to be appointed UN Deputy Secretary-General.

A tweet by Pamela Falk, CBS news reporter for the United Nations, obtained by NAN, said that the world body would soon release a statement confirming the appointment of the Nigerian Minister of Environment.

She is expected to be deputy to Antonio Guterres, who will assume office as UN Secretary-General on Jan. 1, 2017.

Mohammed was appointed minister of Environment by President Muhammadu Buhari in Nov. 2015.

She was also recently appointed by President Buhari to serve in the African Union (AU) Reform Steering Committee as the Nigeria’s Representative.

Mohammed, who hails from Gombe State in North-East, had formerly served as adviser to the outgoing UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. (NAN)
