Ministerial List: Tinubu using DSS, EFCC to reject nominees, sources reveal
Legit.ng reported that President Bola Tinubu is strategically working to knock out some former governors, APC bigwigs, traditional rulers and others jostling for ministerial slots under his administration.
Sources closer to the development disclosed that the outcome of the DSS and EFCC screening of the names of individuals that were forwarded to the two agencies would determine who would be nominated as ministers.
According to the sources, rather than Tinubu out-rightly rejecting names of nominees for the ministerial slot, he was forwarding them to the EFCC and DSS for screening.
