Senate President Ahmad Lawan said President Muhammadu Buhari will present the list of ministerial nominees for the Red Chamber’s consideration and approval this week.
Lawan, who stated this in Wednesday’s plenary, explained that the government’s executive arm was working hard to ensure the list was ready early enough before the senators proceeded on their annual two-month recess.
The Senate President responded to a point of order raised by Senator Bassey Akpan that the delay in submitting the list might affect the senators ‘ holidays.
However, Lawan assured his colleagues and Nigerians that before the week runs out, President Buhari would send the list to the Senate.
He also expressed confidence that the upper chamber would screen the nominees before the July 26 annual vacation.
