The conspicuous absence of certain prominent figures within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from President Bola Tinubu’s recently unveiled ministerial list has raised eyebrows and sparked speculation. These influential individuals, who were anticipated to play significant roles in shaping Tinubu’s cabinet, have seemingly been excluded, leaving room for conjecture and analysis.
In a recent development, the esteemed publication known as the Gist House has previously disseminated information regarding the actions of the Senate President, Goodwill Akpabio. It has come to light that the aforementioned individual, during a momentous plenary session, had the honor of presenting a list that was graciously transmitted to the chamber by the presidency.
In a moment of political significance, Femi Gbajabiamila, a distinguished figure who has previously held the esteemed position of Speaker of the House of Representatives and currently serves as the Chief of Staff to the president, took it upon himself to personally convey a list to none other than Akpabio.
In a surprising turn of events, it appears that the former governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, along with other prominent figures within the party who valiantly championed the cause of Bola Tinubu’s triumph in the momentous February 25 presidential election, has been conspicuously omitted from the esteemed list of nominees. This unexpected development has sparked widespread speculation, as it stands in stark contrast to earlier conjectures that suggested their inclusion.
Notably absent from the highly anticipated roster were the esteemed figures of Femi Fani-Kayode, erstwhile Aviation Minister, and Festus Keyamo, former Minister of Labour and Employment, along with several other prominent stalwarts of the political party.
The comprehensive compilation effectively dispelled any lingering insinuations surrounding the potential emergence of President Tinubu’s esteemed ministerial nominee hailing from the esteemed Benue State, particularly within the confines of the illustrious Benue South Senatorial district.
Several individuals previously rumored to be potential nominees from the state were conspicuously absent from the aforementioned list.
In accordance with the epistolary missive penned by Tinubu, it is postulated that a plethora of additional nominees may potentially manifest in the foreseeable future.
