Prof. Pat Utomi Denies Involvement in Alleged List of Government Appointees and Ministers

…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media. Renowned political economist, Prof. Pat Utomi, has clarified that he has no affiliation with the alleged list of “new appointees and some new ministers” circulating on social media, which falsely claims he is set to serve as a minister under President Bola Tinubu.


Utomi’s Director of Media and Communications, Charles Odibo, issued a statement urging the public to disregard the unfounded list, emphasizing its complete falsehood.
