Buhari’s Ministerial List: 33 Nominees Fail Corruption Test #Beekhaybee

Details about why President
Buhari has failed to announce
his ministers have emerged. President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari Nigerian Tribune reports that the
delay in the unveiling of the much-
awaited ministerial list after
President Mohammadu Buhari’s
two months in office is connected to
the fact that about 33 nominees were found to be linked to
malfeasance, fraud and
misappropriation of funds. While only three out of the 36
nominees successfully passed, it
came as a shock to know that 33
nominees shortlisted by the
president failed the corruption test
which was based on security reports. It was revealed to Nigerian
Tribune that the nominees penciled
in and those submitted by the All
Progressives Congress (APC)
hierarchy were subjected to scrutiny
by the DSS, EFCC, ICPC, CBN, the Force Criminal Investigations Department
(FCID), and the Defence Intelligence
Agency (DIA) for forensic screening.
However, the results came as a huge
disappointment to the president who
planned to have a corruption-free administration. READ ALSO: Why Ekweremadu Should Resign As The Deputy Senate

Senate for approval. This new list

anybody with skeleton in the closet
will not work with him irrespective
of the role he or she played. If such
persons are around him, it means he
may be pressurised to compromise his principled stance”. “So they are trying to push him to a
corner, because the truth is that they
cannot seem to read or understand
his body language. They have now
seen that Buhari is ready to sacrifice
anybody for Nigeria to move forward”, the source stated. Meanwhile, the APC top leaders are reportedly upset over Buhari’s
refusal to name his cabinet
members after spending over a month in power. Some APC leaders
are worried that the president’s
delay in constituting a cabinet may
negatively affect the current
administration. News source – naij.com
