Tinubu to submit list of ministerial nominees
Written by Joey Shekwonuzhibo on July 18, 2023
President Bola Tinubu is expected to send the list of ministerial nominees to the Senate for screening this week.
The President is expected, by law, to forward the list of ministerial nominees to the National Assembly 60 days from the date he takes the oath of office.
The administration of Tinubu was inaugurated on May 29, when the former President Muhammadu Buhari handed over the mantle of leadership to him.
Going by the constitutional provision of the 60 days, the President is left with about 10 days to constitute his cabinet.
Presidency sources hinted that the list of ministerial nominees has been prepared for a long time but there have been adjustments in the list.
Recall that different purported ministerial lists have been in circulation as the President keeps Nigerians guessing on who would make the list and whether there will be government of national unity as speculated in some quarters.
