President Bola Tinubu has delivered the list of his ministerial nominations to the Senate, which would be read out today by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.
According to The Guardian, the list was delivered to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Magaji Tambuwal, yesterday.
The President is required by law to submit a list of ministerial nominations within 60 days of taking office. Tinubu has until July 26 to meet this criterion following his inauguration on May 29.
The ministerial list had been developed in advance, but subsequent changes have been made to ensure its maximum usefulness.
“The list of ministerial nominees has been ready since, but the President had to make some changes in some states,” a credible source revealed.
Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the ministerial list, which would reflect the Tinubu administration’s policy direction in handling the variety of difficulties confronting Africa’s largest economy.
Tinubu’s letter lessens the anxiety and anticipation around his ministerial nomination list. Although no official comment or information has been issued by the Senate, trustworthy sources close to the Senate President’s office have confirmed that the list has reached the Senate.
