Source reveals the ministerial appointment Tinubu gave to Dele Alake, barring last minute change

According to a news that was published by the Leadership Newspaper Online this morning it was reported that, some sources who are close to the incoming president of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have told Leadership correspondent that, Tinubu has penciled some Nigerians for appointments, as some of them are APC members while some are not APC members.



A source, while speaking with Leadership correspondent under the condition of anonymity said that, Dele Alake, has also been penciled down to get a position in Tinubu’s government.

It was reported that Dele Alake, who was the commissioner for information and strategy to the then governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, between 1999 and 2007, has remained with him as media aide, as he is also the special adviser on Media and Communication of the All Progressives Congress’ Presidential Campaign Council.

Leadership revealed Alake has been shortlisted as the next Minister of Information and Culture and that he earned the trust and confidence of his boss considering the way and manner the Media Directorate of the APC campaign team, took on the opposition with the ferocity of a wounded lion in defence of Tinubu and the governing party.

The source said, “For Alake, it is the parliamentary ‘take a bow’ and go, as the president-elect believes that there cannot be a better choice than to replicate the feat of the campaign media team in his cabinet as government’s mouthpiece. It was also gathered that Alake’s loyalty, is not in doubt, as he has been steadfast in working with Bola Tinubu even after leaving office almost two decades ago.”
