Today, Senate President Bukola Saraki read out the list of ministerial nominees sent last week by President Muhammadu Buhari. Amongst those that many analysts missed out from the list is Audu Ogbeh, former national chairman of the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). A number of familiar All Progressives Congress (APC) names such as Babatunde Fashola, former governor of Lagos state, and Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Rivers state also made it. Also nominated to be minister is Lai Mohammed, national publicity secretary of the ruling party, and Kayode Fayemi, who lost his Ekiti governorship re-election bid in 2014 to Ayodele Fayose of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). From the south-east are the likes of Chris Ngige, former governor of Anambra state and former senator of the federal republic; and Ogbonnaya Onu, first executive governor of Abia state and former national chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), on whose ticket Buhari contested and lost the 2003 and 2007 presidential elections.
Udoma Udo Udoma, a former senator who represented Akwa Ibom south senatorial constituency at the national assembly, made it as well. Buhari also nominated for ministerial appointment, Aisha Alhassan, who was on the brink of becoming the first elected female governor before eventually losing the Taraba state governorship election to Darius Ishiaku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). From his days at the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Buhari picked Malami Abubakar, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and former legal adviser of the defunct party; Hadi Sirika, a former pilot and former CPC senator who represented Katsina north senatorial district; as well as Adebayo sh*ttu, former governorship candidate of the legacy party in Oyo state. Ibe Kachikwu, group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), is a surprise appearance on the list. But with Buhari already declaring himself minister of petroleum resources, it is likely that Kachikwu will combine his current portfolio with that of the minister of state for petroleum resources.
Amina Mohammed, former special adviser to the Nigerian president on millennium development goals (MDGs) and current special adviser to United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon on post-2015 development planning, is also a nominee. Kemi Adeosun, former commissioner for finance in Ogun state, was nominated as well. Former chief of army staff, Abdulrahman Dambazau, a retired lieutenant general, is also on the list. He was initially widely speculated to be appointed national security adviser before Buhari picked Babagana Monguno. The first batch contains the names of 21 nominees only.

Well all I can say is that this is not the real list,because there is a glaring mistake in the list.Dr.Ogbonnya Onu is not from Abia State,Yes he was the first civilian governor of old Abia State but that was before the creation of Ebonyi State,some part of Abia State was carved out to create Ebonyi State,Chief Ogbonnaya Onu is from Ohaozara in Ebonyi State.All these wannabe journalists and stupid bloggers should try to verify their facts before making a fool of themselves publicly.Having pointed out this glaring mistake in the so called ministerial list,I will go on to say that if the mistake is from the Presidency,then Nigeria is in for more trouble by having a President that does not know the State of Origin of Dr.Ogbonnaya Onu who he have worked with closely for the past 15 years as opposition and even contested with him as his Vice Presidential candidate.We shall continue to watch closely the said ministerial list and it's reflection of the Federal Character as embedded in our constitution.
