Barring any hitches, President Muhammadu Buhari would submit his long-awaited ministerial list to the Senate before this week runs out.
This was made known by the president of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Wednesday during plenary.
According to him, the executive arm of government was working hard to ensure that the list was ready early enough before the senators proceed on their annual two-month recess.
Many Nigerians have continued to express concerns that the president, more than a month after he was inaugurated into office for a second term, is yet to tell the nation the composition of his cabinet.
The matter came up at plenary on Wednesday, eliciting the Senate president’s reaction to a point of order raised by Senator Bassey Akpan to the effect that the delay in the submission of the list could affect the holidays of the senators.
Lawan, however, assured his colleagues and Nigerians that President Buhari would send the list to the Senate before the week runs out.
He also expressed confidence that the nominees would be screened by the upper chamber before the annual vacation which would commence on July 26.
