List Of Buhari's Ministerial Nominees Screened By DSS

Following Buhari's submission of ministerial nominees, we have decided to compile a full list of the nominees.
The Department of State Service (DSS) recently received a much awaited list of 36 ministerial nominees for security screening.

While DSS carries on the screening indications appeared that three immediate past governors, Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi and Kayode Fayemi, have supposedly failed.
Three former governors worked hard for Buhari’s presidential campaign to and were seen as top candidates for positions in the government.

Nigerian Pilot reports that the DSS did not clear three ministerial appointees based on claims of corruption brought against them before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC).

The source said that the security agency supposedly denied to clear Amaechi, Fashola, Fayemi because of a series of petitions written against them over accusations bordering on money laundering, fraud and misuse.

The insider further added that when the trio appeared before the screening committee, they were opposed with the appeals and other related documents attached to the petitions.
They reportedly have received orders from Buhari that any of the appointees with any harmful and fraud related issues should not be cleared by the security agency.

See full list below:
1. Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, former Osun State governor and ousted PDP national secretary.
2. Chief Bode Mustapha, former PDP National Auditor and an APC chieftain from Ogun state
3. Engineer Segun Oni, former Ekiti state governor and APC deputy national chairman (South West)

President Buhari had in Ghana reassured Nigerians and the international community that his cabinet is a must in September.

Under the former governor state administration beholden $1.02bn which signifies 33.86 % of the country’s total sub-national external debts.

Ex-governor of Rivers state was set to become new secretary to the government.
Amaechi was also accused of dropping state into massive external indebtedness by a coalition of non-governmental organisations interested in transparency and responsibility in governance.
Former governor of Ekiti state was also expected to play a key role in Buhari’s cabinet.
