Nigeria: Cabinet - Bello, Baraje, Odimegwu, Okonjo-Iweala for SSS Screening

This Day
19 June 2011

The list of probable ministerial nominees for the federal cabinet is taking shape as President Goodluck Jonathan has submitted more names to the Department of State Security Service for screening, preparatory to their presentation to the senate for confirmation.


THISDAY further learnt that the name of the Managing Director of the World Bank, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who was Obasanjo's Minister of Finance and later foreign affairs, was among those slated for screening, an indication that she might have accepted Jonathan's offer to serve Nigeria again. She will be representing Abia State in the FEC.

It was, however, unclear Saturday if the former Minister of Finance, Dr. Olusegun Aganga, would be returning to the cabinet like some of his colleagues.
