JUST IN:  Custom Boss, Hammed Ali Set To Defeat Oshiomhole To Emerge As New SGF

Shocking report emanating from the Presidential Villa, Abuja revealed that that the controversial He Comptroller-General of Customs, Col. Hameed Ali has outsmarted the Former Governor Of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole to emerge as one of the leading names of those being considered as the new Secretary General Of The Federation, SGF.

Recall that Ikenga Chronicles had earlier reported that the former SGF Lawal Babachir was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari last week for alleged contract fraud under the Presidential Initiative on North East, PINE, paving way for the possible emergence of Oshiomhole as New SGF.

A presidential source said; “the custom boss, Hammed Ali who is a former military administrator who equally worked very closely with President Buhari, is eminently qualified for the job. The presidency is now considering here more than Oshiomhole. Remember that Hammed Ali is from the North East just like Babachir Lawal”

He added that the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu is also being considered for the job of the SGF.

“Adamu Adamu is a long term ally of President Buhari; he served as his personal secretary during the PTF days and is now a minster who is doing pretty well in his calling,” he said.

Asked to speak further, the source said, “Yes, knowledge of the job is one thing but it would be great if someone from the same zone with the removed SGF is picked, someone who the people would be happy with.”

Two credible sources at the APC national headquarters said the new SGF should come from the North East.

One of them said, “Political balancing is very important and since the suspended SGF is from the North East, his replacement, by no matter who should obviously come from the same zone.”

The ruling APC is watching how the selection process unfolds, with credible sources saying the party would be glad to have someone that will help Buhari in actualizing the mission, vision and manifesto for the party.
