Reports reaching NAN say that the minister is studying her new office and reading the handover note.

It would be recalled that Buhari appointed Ahmed on Friday to oversee the ministry of finance after the resignation of Kemi Adeosun who resigned following the outcome of an investigation into an allegation made by Premium Times of her Certificate of Exemption from National Youth Service Corp (NYSC).

The certificate was later discovered not to be genuine.
