THE QUEST TIMES, a leading news publication known for its accurate and reliable reporting, has been validated for its earlier exclusive story about the ministerial list of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s much-anticipated administration.
The ministerial list, which was officially released today, confirmed the accuracy of THE QUEST TIMES’ earlier report titled “EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Pate, Abiru, Raji, Alake top list of technocrats in Tinubu’s ministerial list, Edun for CBN” published on 20 July, 2023.
This confirmation has sent ripples of excitement and curiosity through Nigeria’s political landscape, as citizens eagerly await the Federal Executive Council (FEC) under President Tinubu.
THE QUEST TIMES’ Exclusive Report
Several days before the official release of the ministerial list, THE QUEST TIMES obtained credible information about Tinubu’s potential cabinet members through its seasoned and dedicated team of investigative journalists. Before going public with the exclusive story, the publication carefully verified its sources and cross-referenced the information to ensure the utmost accuracy.
According to the initial report, the list included a diverse group of individuals, including technocrats, seasoned politicians, and young minds, each chosen for their expertise, experience, and commitment to driving Nigeria towards progress and prosperity.
According to THE QUEST TIMES exclusive, the list includes “technocrats are the former Minister of State for Health during the Jonathan administration Dr. Ali Pate, Senator Tokunbo Abiru representing Lagos State, a former Lagos State Finance Commissioner under the Fashola administration and Mr. Dele Alake, currently (super) Special Adviser to the President.”
We also said “Politicians expected on the list include former Governors Nasir El Rufai, Abdullahi Ganduje, Bello Mattawale and Atiku Bagudu. Bagudu has been tipped to become the next Minister of Agriculture while it is rumoured that Rufai may go to Interior Ministry. For Ganduje, there are now suggestions that the former Kano State Governor should be put forward instead as the Chairman of the party instead of being a minister.”
The exclusive story sparked heated debates and discussions among our many readers, with political analysts and citizens speculating on the potential impact of these nominees on the country’s development.
The Official Ministerial List
The release of the official ministerial list by the Presidency has, without a doubt, validated THE QUEST TIMES’ claims. A substantial number of the individuals listed in the exclusive story have been included in Tinubu’s ministerial roster. This alignment between the report and the actual nominations has cemented the reputation of THE QUEST TIMES as a reliable and prescient source of information.
Other Key Nominees
Other key ministerial nominees include banker Adebayo Adelabu, former Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, All Progressives Congress (APC) Women Leader Mrs. Betta Edu, and Senator Ben Ayade.
The President forwarded the Ministerial list in accordance with the constitutional requirement that the list be submitted to the National Assembly within 60 days of the President’s inauguration.
The list includes a mix of politicians and technocrats, and it is thought to reflect the federal character.
