Jonathan Nominates Obanikoro, Six Others As Ministers by siraj1402(m): 5:41am On Jan 31, 2015
President Goodluck Jonathan has forwarded the names of seven new ministers to the Senate for confirmation, African Independent Television [AIT] is reporting.

Among the nominees are a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, Kenneth Kobani, a former National Treasurer of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN], who recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, and a former Senator, Patricia Akwashiki.

More to come…

Mr. Obanikoro was one of the biggest casualties of the gubernatorial primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], after resigning his ministerial position on October 15 to vie for the party’s ticket in Lagos for the 2015 election.

He lost to Jimi Agbaje, a relatively less known candidate, who had the backing of the party’s most powerful leaders in Lagos.

Alongside Mr. Obanikoro, former ministers Emeka Wogu, Labaran Maku, Onyebuchi Chukwu, and Samuel Ortom, also lost their bids after leaving their posts to contest in their respective states.

Mr. Obanikoro rejected the Lagos results and filed a legal challenge against the declaration of Mr. Agbaje as winner, kicking off a row that has the potential to ruin any chances the party may have in snatching Lagos from All Progressives Congress, APC in 2015.

The logjam was finally been resolved amicably after President Goodluck Jonathan assured Mr. Obanikoro he would reappoint him to cabinet as part of a deal personally brokered by the President to get him to discontinue his legal challenge of the PDP governorship primary result for Lagos State.

Mr. Obanikoro later withdrew his court case, at the same time promising to fully support Mr. Agbaje as the PDP candidate.

It is very clear GEJ isn't in charge at all, he lack political will to stand firm and be effective at his job. Sycophants all around him keep dictating to him. Why nominate Obanikoro again when he willingly resign from same position to context governorship primary? Is this the agreement that made Koro to drop his charges against Agbaje?

Change will come exactly 15 days from now. On Valentine's day Nigerians will show their love for the People's General with their PVC at the polling booth. We shall wait behind and ensure that our votes count.

SAI FEBUHARI/OSINBAJO! !

I was just reading an article on how Obanikoro pressured Jonathan to approve list of ministers , the list was gathered in a day , approved the same day and Ministers announced, it shows how steeewpyd GEJ is , easily manipulated and has no plans , Obanikoro tried to rig election in Osun, he commandeered several units of touts and thugs , until osun people chased him away

No due process followed
Bad reputation not a deterrent
He promised not to contest second term, Now he is
HE prmised to provide Jobs, instead he provided interview that killed graduates
Nothing GEJ promised has manifested so far
So if he says he'll concede the election if he looses , we know its a big fat lie

All GEJ cares about is winning and he's won already ,


HE won free ticket to Otuoke grin grin

Less 15 days left, Go get your PVC, keep it very safe , don't keep it on you when you are going out for fun or party ,

When its election day , don't be scared to exercise your rights as a citizen, troop out

GET TO THE POLLING CENTRE AND THUMBPRINT ON APC , the party with the broom to sweep away all corrupt elements, poverty , failures and cluelessness, This is our chance VOTE GMB otherwise GEJ will torment us all

Bla bla bla...
Report says nominate and you are here saying approved without due process.
For your info, it's the National Assembly that approve ministerial nominees.
Just read and comprehend before doing your copy and paste out of hatred for Mr President!

How many months will they be there, knowing that the entire cabinet will be dissolved prior to May 29, whether Jonathan wins or loses? I think this is a waste of resources and an unnecessary distraction.
