President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday submitted another list of ministerial nominees to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for screening and confirmation.
This is in line with President Buhari’s promise to send the second batch of ministerial nominees to the Senate for confirmation.
The President who said the first submission was a partial list of ministerial nominees assured that “the second list will follow shortly.”
Findings showed that the second batch of nominees was submitted to the Senate President by the Chief of Staff to the President, Alhaji Abba Kari, accompanied by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang.
Hon. Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila, another Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, was also said to be among the delegation that submitted the second ministerial list to the Senate President.
The list was reportedly handed over to Saraki at about 4:20pm.
The names of the ministerial nominees had not been disclosed at the time of filing this report.
The Senate will begin the screening and possible confirmation of the nominees on Tuesday.
The exercise is expected to last three days.
