Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan says President Muhammadu Buhari will submit the list of ministerial nominees for the consideration and approval of the Senate this week.
Senator Lawan who stated this at today’s plenary explained that the executive arm of government is working hard to ensure that the list is ready early enough before the Senators proceed on their annual two-month recess.
The Senate President was reacting 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.
He, however, assured his colleagues and Nigerians that President Buhari would send the list to the Senate before the week runs out.
Sentor Lawan also expressed confidence that the nominees would be screened by the upper chamber before the annual vacation which would commence on July twenty-six.
