Buhari’s ministerial list is ready

President Muhammadu Buhari’s list of ministerial-nominees is ready, according to reports.

The Senate may get a letter and the ministerial list from the President, requesting the confirmation of the nominees on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Indications of the readiness of the much-awaited ministerial list emerged in the past 24 hours – that Buhari, who is currently attending the 70th United Nations General Assembly in New York, had concluded work on the list.

While reacting to a report on an online medium that Buhari had sent one of his National Assembly Liaison Officers, Senator Ita Enang, back to Nigeria with the list meant for the Senate, presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, told reporters in New York on Monday that he would not be surprised if the list was ready.

He said it was within the timeline given by the President himself.

Femi Adesina said:

“I will not be surprised if the list is ready because it is within the timeline that the President gave. He said he will name his cabinet in September. Today (Monday) is September 28, so if it happens that it is ready, it is within the timeline”

When asked to give an insight into the number of nominees on the list, the presidential spokesman simply said:

“The constitution already gives you an idea of the number of people that can be on the cabinet because it stipulates that we must have at least one minister per state”
