Tinubu Appointed Peter Obi’s Ally Pat Utomi as Minister? Labour Party Chieftain Reacts

Professor Pat Utomi, a political economist and ally of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, has distanced himself from a circulating list of alleged new appointees and ministers to serve in President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

The list, being circulated on social media, purports that he will serve as a minister in Tinubu’s government.

However, Utomi, through his media aide, Charles Odibo, released a statement urging Nigerians to disregard the list, according to Sahara Reporters.

The statement, also cited by Vanguard, partly reads:

“The attention of Prof. Pat Utomi has again been drawn to a disingenuous ‘list of new appointees and some new ministries’ currently circulating on the social media, purporting that Utomi will serve as a minister in President Bola Tinubu’s government. Nothing can be further from the truth. 

We have been in constant touch with Utomi who has been out of the country for over two months working on his new book, and he has confirmed that he has not held discussions with anyone with regard to any government appointment

“He, therefore, urges Nigerians to ignore the obviously fake list associating him with the new Federal Government
