Daniel Bwala, the spokesperson for the AtikuAbubakar Presidential Campaign Organization, has stated that a certain minister intends to ambush the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, in order to secure a substantive ministerial position.
He stated that the minister in question desires Tinubu to appoint him to an important ministerial position; thus, he argued that the appointment of Ministers of State is unconstitutional.
Bwala also asserted that the politician in question desired the position of Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), but was instead appointed Minister of State for Labour.
“He wants to ambush Tinubu to give him a substantive ministerial role, hence his argument that Buhari appointing him as minister of state is unconstitutional.
“That’s exactly how he wanted the role of AGF and went to NASS confirmation hearing and was answering in this manner “If I become AGF” it got PMB’s chief of staff mad and they gave him an inconsequential role first under Niger Delta, the substantive minister then allegedly complained and he was further re-assigned to labour as “under secretary’ aka minister of state. Sources close to Tinubu revealed.
“My take is that desperation and scheming are killers of opportunity.”
