Buhari’s Ministerial List: 33 Out Of 36 Nominees Fail Corruption Test


Nigerian Tribune reports that the delay in the unveiling of the much-awaited ministerial list after President Mohammadu Buhari’s two months in office is connected to the fact that about 33 nominees were found to be linked to malfeasance, fraud and misappropriation of funds.

However, the results came as a huge disappointment to the president who planned to have a corruption-free administration.
