These personalities are popular and powerful. In fact, they seem to be the only five many Nigerians are looking out for their activities when sworn in.

Ahead of the swearing-in of the 36 ministerial nominees that would be forming members of the presidential cabinet, there are insinuations that some ministers would out do others.

Already, the names of some nominees have created discourse since their announcement till their screening by the Senate.

Interestingly, the names of some ministers, who would make regular headlines for their activities in their respective ministries have suddenly become a subject of discourse.

Here are the 5 ministerial nominees, who would without doubt rock the presidential boat after their swearing in ceremony.

Rotimi Amaechi


He’s the most controversial of the lot. No thanks to his contribution towards the success of the All Progressive Congress at the presidential polls. He’s certain to make a statement in whatever ministry he heads. Politicians and Nigerians are looking forward to his contribution which would either make or mar Buhari’s administration.

Babatunde Fashola


Undoubtedly, BRF as he’s fondly referred to is one of the most popular of all the lot. His achievements and records as a two term governor of Lagos State remains one of his high points. Just like Amaechi, political watchers are looking forward to his contribution to either make or mar Buhari’s administration.

Lai Mohammed


The National Publicity Secretary to the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, is another man that Nigerians are on the look out for. It is believed that his mastery of information dissemination would be once again called to action. Whether he would make APC proud or mar Buhari’s administration is what Nigerians are looking out for.

Chris Ngige


He’s known to be a controversial personality and after his political antecedents, it is only hoped that this ex-governor and senator would not repeat his controversial ways as a serving minister under President Buhari.

Ibe Kachikwu


One of the reasons many would be looking out for this man, who became a toast of the presidency after the emergence of President Buhari is his knowledge of the Oil sector. Hinted to be the man that would take over embattled Diezani Allison madueke’s job, so much attention would be focused on Kachikwu’s abilities. he would also have to justify the presidency’s confidence in him.
