Buhari ministers: Oshiomhle nominates Agba, Buhari picks Ehanire, Gov Obaseki’s sideline

2 min


The much awaited ministerial list was made public earlier today when the Senate President, Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan read the list on the floor of the Senate.

Apart from 41 other nominees, the immediate past Commissioner for Environment, Mr. Clem Agba. If he goes through the screening successfully, he will be an obvious round peg in round hole. Midwest Herald can authoritatively report that Agba’s intimidating credentials were brightened by Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Likewise, the immediate past Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire will be returning to the Federal Executive Council on the ticket of President Mohammadu Buhari who picked him as nominee for the South South Zone. This is what raised Edo State number to two.

Informed sources revealed to Midwest Herald that unlike in 2015 when the medical doctor earned his position based on his position as the Leader of Congress for Progressive Change, the nod fell on him this time, because of the “professional service he rendered to the son of the president in Germany when Yusuf was involved in a life threatening bike accident.

“Don’t forget that Ehanire had his medical training in Germany and speak the language fluently which enabled him to ensure that Yusuf Buhari received adequate treatment.” Our source said.

However the emergence of both men, may have thrown the camp of Edo People Movement (EPM) into confusion as none of the names earlier peddled as possible hopeful made the final list. It will be recall that the conjunction that was spread amongst the pro Oshiomhole sets, especially those from Edo South had the names of Dr. Pius Odubu, Mr. Henry Idahagbon and Mr. Patrick Obahiagbon.

During the administration of Oshiomhole, the ministerial position was zoned to Edo South, with Dr. Osagie Ehanire as Minister of State for Health. His nomination then was a huge surprise to many, especially amongst APC chieftains, but unknown to many that he had been a trusted ally of PMB all through his struggle to become president.

Midwest Herald can forecast that the disappointment of the key leaders of pro Oshiomhole group may heighten the struggle for the APC ticket in their fold. The secret calculation was for Oshiomhole tob ‘compensate’ Odubu with ministerial, while an undisclosed name gets the APC governorship ticket in place of incumbent, Godwin Obaseki.
