Buhari Set To Resign As Petroleum Minister, Makes Shocking Replacement

The out-going Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, is set to emerge as Minister of Petroleum Resources, after he hands over to the Governor-elect, Godwin Obaseki, in November, Post-Nigeria has authoritatively gathered.

Post-Nigeria further gathered on Saturday, that President Muhammadu Buhari, who has been guarding that position jealously, is now ready to relinquish it to his most trusted ally, Oshiomhole, who assiduously worked for his emergence as the President of Nigeria.

When Post-Nigeria’s correspondent probed further, a staunch supporter of the President, and who also has the ears of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, from Ogun State said: ” Oshiomhole has done a good job as the Governor of Edo State.

“He has the trust of the President. Remember how he unofficially acted as the Spokesman of the President, before the appointment of Ministers.

He added, “He was the one who kept on exposing the rot in the NNPC, Ngozi-Iweala’s corruption breaking scandal, and many more. He is a man of passion and zeal.

“As I speak, the Presidency is contemplating compensating him with the position of Petroleum Minister, for the purpose of reforms.

“But some Northern cabals are against it”.

Recall, that Oshiomhole was once the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, President, and contested for the Governorship position of Edo State, under the defunct Action Congress, AC, and was re-elected under the party ACN, which is now known as the APC, in 2012.
