Ministerial Nomination: Wike, Ganduje Allegedly Fail DSS Screening


LAGOS JULY 24TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, has reportedly failed the ministerial screening by the Department of State Service (DSS).

Also said to have failed the screening exercise is immediate past Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje.

This, according to investigative journalist, Jackson Ude, led to the names of both men being dropped from the ministerial list.

Tweeting from his handle @jacksonpbn at exactly 8:14 PM yesterday, Sunday, July 23, 2023, Ude, a Global Peace Ambassador, said:

“At a meeting last night, Bola Tinubu broke the news to former Governors Nyesom Wike and Abdullahi Ganduje that the DSS has refused to clear them for Ministerial positions. Wike lost his cool and started shouting at Tinubu. Security operatives had to restrain him from his unruly behavior. Insiders said Wike was yelling at the top of his voice claiming that after all the sacrifices and enemies he made to ensure Tinubu won, this is not how to pay him back. Ganduje on his part, took it calmly before they were escorted out of the Villa at the late hours.”

President Tinubu has barely four days to the expiration of the 60-day provision for the President to submit names of ministerial nominees to the Senate for screening and confirmation.

He took over from erstwhile president Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, with reports that he would submit the ministerial list last week turning out to be false.
