Report indicates that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Ministerial list is ready and will be submitted to the Senate by next week.
A former Minister, who served in the first term of Buhari’s government, said he believed that the President will send the list in order to avoid the mistake of the past when he waited for six months to appoint Ministers in his first term.
Besides that, the Minister stated that the President was aware of the schedule of the Senate when its members would resume from break on July 2.
He said: “We have the rumour that the President might submit the names of the new Ministers to the Senate early next month. The list is ready.
“I think he is aware that the Senate will embark on another round of recess before the end of July. So, he will have to send the ministerial List to the Senators as soon as they return on July 2.
“Though our party, the All Progressives Congress, controls the National Assembly, I don’t think it will be cost-effective to summon the Senators for the Ministerial clearance after they might have gone on another break.”
Asked if he had been contacted by the Presidency to resubmit his curriculum vitae for possible reappointment, he answered in the negative, adding that “the President is the only person who knows who will return.”
