ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Nigerian President Bola Tinubu has sworn in a new Cabinet of 45 ministers with a promise to fast-track reforms aimed at improving lives in Africa’s biggest economy and most populous country. Tinubu swore the ministers in on Monday in the capital, Abuja, and charged them with accountability and selfless service.
