Earlier on Sunday morning, it was revealed that reports from the Department of State Service (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) would determine the type of individuals who will make the list.

According to the new law, President Tinubu must unveil his ministerial list and forward them to the national assembly for confirmation in his 60 days in office. Sunday made it 48 days since the President was sworn in.

But Ogunlesi went into another dimension on factors influencing the ministerial list.

According to Ogunlesi, the six factors are listed below:

Considerations for the selection of Cabinet Ministers in Nigeria typically involve COMBINATION of 2 or more of the following:

  1. Politics (political clout/past campaign value/future utility)
  2. CV (Technocratic value)
  3. State of Origin
  4. Religion and Gender
  5. Personal friendship
  6. Luck

The former presidential aide further explained that luck is part of the list because of the cases where two competent individuals emerged from the same state; there would be a need to consider one above the other. In such cases, religion or gender could be deployed.

Ministerial List: Tinubu moves to replace Abiru with Ambode as Lagos Senator

Legit.ng earlier reported that President Bola Tinubu has been reported to be making fresh permutations to return Akinwunmi Ambode, the former governor of Lagos State, into the political space.

The president was said to be considering making Ambode the senator representing Lagos East while the current holder of the senatorial seat would be compensated with a ministerial slot.

According to a source within the presidency, if the permutation works in his favour, Ambode will get a position either in the presidency or the state.
