Ministerial list: Mr President did not surprise anyone – Yinka Odumakin

-

- Advertisment -

National Publicity Secretary of the Yoruba Socio- political group, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said yesterday that President Muhammadu Buhari would have submitted the names of ministerial nominees at Eagle Square rather than to the Senate.

Reacting to the speculated names of possible ministers, Odumakin who noted that there was nothing unique about the list, said the President did not surprise anyone, as he believes the names were not worth waiting for, for a period of four months.

He said: “There is no excitement or surprise in the list. They are mostly run of the mill people that do not warrant waiting four months to have. Those names could have been submitted at Eagles square on May 29.”

Senate President Bukola Saraki Wednesday received the first twenty – one names of nominees to make President Buhari ministerial list , just as the names would be forwarded in batches.

Former Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi and his counterpart in Lagos, Babatunde Fashola were among the names forwarded to the senate.

Others in the list are, former governors, Anambra, Chris Ngige; Abia State, Ogbonaya Onu, Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi; a one time APC governorship flag bearer in Taraba, Aisha Alhassan,

Also said to be on the list are Kayode Fayemi, a former governor of Ekiti State; a former Governor of Anambra State, Chris Ngige; and a one-time Governor of Abia State, Ogbonaya Onu; Amina Mohammed; A former commissioner of Ogun State, Kunle Adeosun; Malami Abubakar (SAN) and the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Ibe Kachikwu.

However, we advise that Nigerians wait for the official announcement before we know if there will be any difference to the report spreading out online.
