Indications are rife, that Lagos based radical lawyer and rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN), former presidential candidate, Professor Pat Utomi, and former managing director of Nigeria Breweries Limited, Festus Odimegwu may have been screened by the Department of State Service (DSS).
Others also said to have been screened as President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees include a former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazu (retd.), a former chief executive of the Federal Inland Revenue, Mrs. Ifueko Omoigui-Okaru, former commissioner of finance in Lagos State, Wale Edun, and a former National Legal Adviser to the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Abubakar Malami (SAN).
It was gathered that the screening was last Friday concluded with some of the nominees appearing before the DSS.
None of the screened ministerial nominees however confirmed the development.
