Fashola, Segun Oni, Amaechi, Ezekwesili, Danbazzau May Make Buhari’s Cabinet. by Nobody: 3:59am On Jun 13, 2015
•Obasanjo, Danjuma, Tinubu, Atiku, Saraki nominate candidates •President may submit list to NASS next week

Immediate past governors of Lagos and Rivers states, Mr. Babatunde Fashola and Mr. Rotimi Amaechi respectively; a former governor of Ekiti State, Engineer Segun Oni and Education minister in the Obasanjo government, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, may be among the ministerial nominees being considered by President Muhammadu Buhari, The Nation has gathered.

Also believed to be on the list expected to be forwarded to the Senate next week are a former Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Abdurahman Danbazzau; Prof. Pat Utomi of the Pan Africa University, Lagos and Chief Economic Adviser to the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, Dr.Tanimu Yakubu Kirfi.

One of ex-Ekiti Governor Kayode Fayemi and ex-Osun Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola may also be picked.

Presidency sources said last night that while Buhari is keen on having a lean cabinet, the 1999 Constitution is an impediment as it stipulates that every state of the federation must be represented in the Federal Executive Council.

Buhari and his think-tank are said to have realised that the size of the incoming cabinet cannot be less than 36.

Although the President is keeping the list to his chest, it was learnt that he is disposed to accepting nomination of capable,tested and what one source called “ethical” candidates from ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, ex-Chief of Army Staff, Gen. T.Y. Danjuma, APC national leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, and the newly-elected Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

Ex-Minister Bolaji Abdullahi and former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Kawu Baraje are likely to slug it out for the Kwara State slot.

Buhari is also said to favour consulting Tinubu on some slots, regardless of pressure from some elements in the Presidency.

A source said: “The President has been consulting widely on the list of his ministers. All things being equal, some candidates from ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, ex-Chief of Army Staff, Gen. T.Y. Danjuma, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, and the newly-elected Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki may make the list.

“Some of these heavyweights have submitted advisory names but it is left for the President to reject or accept them.

“Governors will have less input into the cabinet. The President is actually fine-tuning the list of ministers which he will soon send to the National Assembly. We are hopeful that in the next one week or two, the legislature may get the list.

“As I am talking to you, the President is keeping the list to his chest. I am aware that some ex-governors may make the team on merit.”

On the provisions of Section 147(1-3),one source said: “It is difficult for the President to manage a cabinet that is less than 36 because of the constitutional provision.

“The President may however reduce the perks of office of Ministers and make the posts less lucrative except for genuine ones who want to serve the nation. So in the light of 147(1-3), the President is handicapped and he has to run the government with at least 36 ministers unless the constitution is amended.”

The section reads: “There shall be such offices of Ministers of the Government of the Federation as may be established by the President.

“Any appointment to the office of Minister of the Government of the Federation shall, if the nomination of any person to such office is confirmed by the Senate, be made by the President.

“Any appointment under subsection (2) of this section by the President shall be in conformity with the provisions of section 14(3) of this Constitution:

“Provided that in giving effect to the Provisions aforesaid the President shall appoint at least one Minister from each state, who shall be an indigene of such state.”



When contacted, one of the strategists of the new administration said: “The President is still keeping the list of ministers to his chest; he has not disclosed any list.”

The question should be 'Will she accept you back? A responsible man will not be away for 9 months and not know that his wife was pregnant and had baby'
How is this question relevant to the post/topic?

Exactly 14 days after his inauguration , PMB is yet to appoint an SGF or chief of staff. That makes me suspect there could be a lot of in-house politicking and interest groups in the party that want to be pacified.
It doesnt take rocket science to predict that the likes of BRF , Dambazzau , Fayemi , Amaechi , Prof Utomi , Chris Ngige , Ogbonnaya Onu , +/- Madam due process , would make it to PMB's cabinet. I really dont see reasons why Oyinlola , Segun Oni , Kawu Baraje are doing on that list undecided shocked.
Meanwhile i thought the NASS has deferred plenary till June 23 , so who is PMB forwarding the list to next week ? shocked undecided undecided

Buhari must stay clear of Ezekwesili, she is evil and she personally destroyed Federal Government Colleges when she was Education Minister.

She even attempted to sell off Federal Government Colleges to her evil friends but thanks to late President Yar'adua that reverse that her satanic plan

Baba go slow! Tinkering, hankering and pandering to so many whims and caprices. The Buhari government is fast proving to be the biggest scam Nigerians had ever been taken on. The man exhudes confusion and indecision. After three weeks, he has not appointed an SGF or Chief of staff because he is consulting?

Well, I am indifferent. Thank God President Michelle of West Germany is my friend.

.Is it not the same fashola that daily independent said pmb has picked as sgf that is still being considered as a minister?What i see in all these unending reports about Pmb naming his cabinet is that, Pmb is keeping the list of his appointments including that of SGF and COS to his chest, and as such people who are close to him are in d dark as to those who will make the list.All our newspapers have been doing all this few weeks,is nothing but guess work. Daily independent even pmb will announce both sgf and ministerial list on Monday, when according to a press release by the presidency,the will coming back to the country from AU summit on Tuesday.

Actually, what PMB means is that, whilst lost/ nominations are slightly welcome, he's no under no obligation or compulsion to go by them. Any list is still subjected to his discretional drive.
