Former Presidential Aide, Laolu Akande, has lauded the recent inauguration of the cabinet by President Bola Tinubu.

Akande, Spokesperson to the immediate past Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, in a statement, on Friday in Abuja, also expressed his confidence in the ministers to deliver on their mandates.

He, however, said there was need for some clarifications to avoid duplication of roles by ministries.

He called on the President to clarify where “innovation” as a portfolio would be based and to further make public articulation of social welfare that was added to the health ministry.

According to him there has to be clarity in the area of who takes charge of the innovation portfolio which has been duplicated between two ministries.

“If you look at the list of the ministries, there are two important questions the Federal Government has to answer.

“I think the President has to answer this: number one, where is innovation?

“We have the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation and we also have the Minister of Communication, Innovation and Digital Economy, which has to be sorted out.

“Are we going to have a situation where you have innovation here and you have innovation there? Probably this has been sorted out by the two ministers,” he said.
