Bobo Chicago Bola Tinubu, who has been credited with gifting Buhahari the presidency, has asked to be rewarded with the ministry for petroleum in the incoming administration.
Apart from his experience of milking and bilking Lagos State, Tinubu has some relevant oil experience as a former accountant at Mobil Oil.
However, the oil ministry is the most lucrative portfolio in the Nigerian cabinet. Our source claims that Tinubu wants to go from “an ordinary accountant to the Lagos State accountant and then Nigeria’s accountant.”
It remains to be seen whether Buhahari would allow Tinubu the opportunity to get even richer than Buhahari himself in the next four years and how this would play with his anti-corruption image.
