Buhari Submits Second Ministerial List




Second List

Senate President Bukola Saraki, on Monday received the second batch of list of ministerial nominees from President Muhammadu Buhari, less than two weeks after taking delivery of the first set of 21 names.

The content of the latest list, which will contain at list 15 names to meet the constitutional requirement of each state producing a minister, is yet to be made known.

It was delivered to the Senate President by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, and Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matter (Senate), Ita Enang.

The Senate President confirmed receiving the list at 4:33pm using his Twitter handle.

“Few minutes ago, on behalf of Nigerian Senate, I received the second batch of the list of ministerial,” he posted on Twitter.

Unlike the first list, which was only revealed after six days due to public holiday and weekend, Nigerians are likely to know the names on the new list by Tuesday when the Senate begins its screening of the first 21 nominees.
