Nigeria’s acting President Goodluck Jonathan has appointed a Goldman Sachs prime brokerage executive to the country’s cabinet.
Olusegun Aganga, who is based in London, heads Goldman’s hedge fund consulting services. The managing director has reportedly been actively developing the firm’s business in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa.
Aganga is a newcomer to Nigerian politics.

Jonathan is expected to add nine others to the list of nominees, which are expected to be approved by the country’s Senate before Easter.
