There had however been reports that the trio of Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi and Kayode Fayemi during the screening with the security agency were disqualified on the ground that they had some issues relating to financial misappropriation.

Following the apprehension that trailed the long delay in the release of the ministerial list, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, October 1, had confirmed to Nigerians that he submitted the first set of the ministerial nominees he would want in his cabinet to the Senate for confirmation.

According to a top presidency source, a last minute change by President Buhari favoured the former governor of Anambra state, Chris Ngige, whose name came in at the eleventh hour.

The inclusion of Ngige was to dispel the notion that the current administration is marginalising South-easterners on the basis that they did not support the presidency during the last general election.
