World Bank Managing Director, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala may return to Nigeria as minister under the new dispensation. There are strong indications that she would return again to her seat as the Federal minister of Finance under the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan. Facts to this effect emerged as Mr. President formally sent the name of Mrs. Okonjo- Iweala to the State Security Service (SSS) for clearance.
It would be recalled that the versatile woman who contributed a lot to the economic programs under former President Obasanjo eventually left the cabinet in controversial circumstances  after she was posted to the Foreign Affairs ministry from the Finance ministry.
Suprisingly, gistmaster.com gathered that the name of former managing director of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr.Festus Odimegwu was also on the list.Those in the know that this must be compensation time for Odimegwu who was sacked through to his incursion into politics. He was  a strong supporter of ex president Olusegun Obasanjo alleged Third term bid in office. Many believe he was sacked because as the head of a corporate institution like Nigerian Breweries he was not suppose to be too partial in his political affiliations.
Mary Onyali- Omagbemi, a popular Nigerian sprinter who did Nigeria proud at many international athletic competitions has also been nominated to become a minister. Her name, gistmaster gathered has been sent for clearance by the security agency
