The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as mere fiction the ministerial list widely circulating in the social media, as President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet list.
”Nigerians should disregard these lists and await the authentic list which will be communicated through the appropriate channels at the right time,” Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party’s publicity secretary said today.
The ministerial list circulating was said to have emanated from the DSS, DMI and NIA. It was said to have been submitted to the security agencies last week.
Among the persons listed are Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, the former Osun state governor, Chief Bode Mustapha, the former PDP National Auditor and the Director General,Senator Ibikunle Amosun Campaign Organisation, Engr. Segun Oni, the former Ekiti State governor and APC Deputy National Chairman (South/West).
Others are Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Abba Ruma, a former Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources and Chief Kanu Agabi, a former Minister of Justice, Mr. Donald Duke, a former governor of Cross River State, Governor Raji Fashola of Lagos State and Yinka Folashade Oredola, a pharmacist from Ondo State.
Other names on the list include; Rotimi Akeredolu, a former gubernatorial candidate in Ondo State, Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State and Director General General Muhammed Buhari Campign Organisation,Engr. Funsho Kupolokun, a former Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation,NNPC, Senator-elect and Kano State governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwanso and one Bisola Adegbenro.
Also on the list are Isaiah Danjuma, the son of General T.Y. Danjuma from Taraba State, Mr. Dele Momodu, the Publisher of Ovation Magazine, Kehinde Lawanson, a former executive Director of First Bank Plc and Chief Bayo Ojo (SAN), a former Justice Minister.
In dismissing the list as pure work of fiction, the APC appealed to the media to clarify with the authentic officials of the party and the Buhari Campaign Organization any issue having to do with the actions of the
President-elect in order to avoid presenting falsehood as facts
Mohammed said the appeal became necessary following recent media reports on the actions which the President-elect will purportedly embark upon once he is sworn into
”Various people have been quoted in the media on what the President-elect will do or will not do once he assumes office. The truth is that these people do not speak for the President-elect, hence the need for the media to clarify such issues with the Chairman of the party, its National Publicity Secretary or the Spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organization. These officials are always available to clarify
issues,” it said.
APC said the ongoing transition is a delicate period that fifth columnists could capitalize on to cause disaffection or overheat the polity, hence the need for all stakeholders to be extra-cautious and to put the national interest above all other interests.
