President Muhammadu Buhari has finally sent the list of his ministerial nominees to the Senate. Reports from TheCable reveal that the list was sent to the Nigerian Senate on Monday evening via Executive Communication, and it is expected to be read on the floor of the Senate today.

The Nigerian Senate had earlier announced it would be proceeding on a two-month recess on Thursday. This means the ministerial nominees are expected to be screened before the commencement of the legislative recess.

The list: Contrary to earlier speculations, only 12 ministers are re-appointed from the former cabinet. While the President appointed 36 ministers during his first term, the list increased to 43 ministers. This means each state, as well as each geopolitical zone, has a representative.

  1. God saves us in Nigeria,i have no critisim to makes but an observation.Senator Goodswill Akpabio have a case of corruption with effcc,let him clear himself of corruptionas Obj said God is a Nigerian,let the senate confirms Mr Goodswill apkabio.in previous govt.Ministers are GIVEN THEIR ALLOCATED POSTION,BEFORE THEY ARE FORWARDED TO THE SENATE.
    I SAID SO NOW,THE NON-PERFORMANCE OF PREVIOUS MINISTER,WHO DO WE HOLD RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR NON-PERFORMANCE,now why are we repeating this same mistake is,mr buhari making in his first cabinet.we are working in darkness here,we do not know who do we hold responsible,when things go wrong.
    Under obj govt,he gave his minister a piece of paper,once they passed thie screening,he all summoned them to his office seperately,after reading this piece of paper in his office,they asked obj “What is this “,and obj told them ” This is your letter of resignation for non-performance,now all of you get out of my office and makes Nigeria proud”
