The former minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, has revealed the fact about the scenario about why his name was missing from President Muhammadu Buhari’s Ministerial list.
the ex-minister while speaking on the factors that denied him from making The Next Level Cabinet also debunk the reports that he rejected a second slot to be appointed a ministerial nominee by the President.
According to him, “there was no such thing that occurred. I never rejected Mr. President’s offer for re-appointment. No one approached me on behalf of Mr. President since we left office on 29th May, and I never went to lobby anyone, because I had a very good and smooth working relationship with Mr. President.“It is complete falsehood and mischief for anyone to insinuate that I declined the offer of re-appointment.”
The ex-minister, however, thanked President Buhari for the opportunity given him to serve the nation.
“At any rate, I am grateful to Mr. President for giving me the chance to contribute to the development of our dear country in the last four years. President Muhammadu Buhari is such a good man who means well for the country. I believe we all need to support him to take the country to the next level of national development.”
Meanwhile, a delegation of the Idoma Development Forum led by Dr Jacob Okwori who paid him a visit on Friday in Abuja were also shocked that the elder statesman did not make the list despite his record of achievements.
“We were really surprised when your name was not on the list, considering all these accomplishments.
The Group also stated that the elder statesman shows the presence of powerful Cabals in the presidential villa
“There has been strong indication that your denial gives credence to the stories going round in the social media and official circles that the so called ‘cartel in the villa’ actually interfered with the list of Mr. President and even the Vice President by replacing some names with their preferred candidates.”
