A source has disclosed the particular portfolios for the proposed ministers recently appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari. The source, who is close to the Presidency, has confirmed that, coming under the Defence and Finance ministries are the controversial names of former governors of Rivers and Lagos states; Rotimi Amaechi and Babatunde Raji Fashola.
The former Lagos State Governor is barely recovering from the heavy controversy surrounding an extravagant website scandal totalling a whopping N78 million, and an immensely inflated borehole project that cost N139m to sink two.
The heavy debt he left for his successor Akinwunmi Ambode has not left public discourse either, with many people within the All Progressives Congress, APC, tagging him as “corrupt.”
Although the source did not specifically name what qualifies Babatunde Fashola for the position, he said he was a worthy addition.
Rotimi Amaechi has been penned down for the Defence ministry. He has accompanied the President on all defence related visits abroad, gauging the perception of representatives of foreign governments on how we can solve our security issues, including kidnappings.
