Buhari’s cabinet expansion not feasible this year

The much anticipated cabinet expansion and reshuffle by President Muhammadu Buhari will no longer be possible this year, Daily Trust reports.

The Senate would hold its last sitting today ahead of the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Spokesperson of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi (APC, Niger) said the president had not transmitted his request on ministerial nominees to the Senate for screening and confirmation.

In a phone interview, Sabi said, “It (the list) has not been transmitted because it was not read on the floor of the Senate, except if it was brought after we adjourned,” he said.
