Ganduje, El-rufai, Other Northern Governors To Be Compensate In Tinubu’s Cabinet
A source said some serving and past governors have also indicated an interest in various ministerial positions.
Tinubu is expected to send the list of his ministers to the National Assembly within 60 days of his inauguration.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently signed a bill that requires the president and governors to submit the names of persons nominated as ministers or commissioners within 60 days of taking the oath of office for confirmation by the Senate or state house of assembly.
“Kano Governor Ganduje wants to be the Federal Capital Territory minister, El-Rufai wants the NSA (National Security Adviser) position, Fashola and Gbajabiamila want the Chief of Staff position.
“Wale Edun wants to be the Minister of Finance while Governor Bagudu wants to be the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria,” the source said.
When Tinubu was the Lagos governor between 1999 and 2007, Edun held the position of commissioner for finance in the state.
Kaduna State under El-Rufai has been one of the most terrorised states in the country, with bandits roaming free, killing, kidnapping and wreaking all forms of havoc.
