Agbakoba emphasized the importance of these appointments, as the Attorney General and SGF play pivotal roles in shaping the legal and administrative landscapes of the nation. Drawing upon his sources within Tinubu’s political circle, Agbakoba suggested that Governor Bagudu of Kebbi State is being considered for the role of Attorney General. Bagudu’s extensive legal background, coupled with his governance experience, positions him as a strong contender for this critical position.

While Agbakoba’s statements provide valuable insights into the potential appointments, it is essential to note that these are preliminary speculations and not official confirmations. The final decision rests with President-elect Tinubu and will likely be based on a comprehensive evaluation of each candidate’s qualifications, experience, and alignment with his administration’s vision.
Bagudu and Fashola’s strong reputations within legal, administrative, and political spheres make them attractive prospects for President Tinubu’s administration. Their demonstrated commitment to public service and upholding the rule of law positions them as potential assets in driving the nation’s development agenda forward.
As Nigeria looks to the future, the selection of key individuals such as the Attorney General and SGF is of utmost importance in ensuring effective governance and the realization of the nation’s goals. President Tinubu’s potential consideration of Bagudu and Fashola for these positions indicates his intention to assemble a capable and experienced team that can contribute to the success of his administration.
It is crucial to recognize that these potential appointments are subject to further developments and official announcements from President Tinubu’s administration. Until such time, they should be regarded as speculative, based on the insights provided by Olisa Agbakoba.
