President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list is now with the Senate and may be read at plenary this Tuesday morning, sources have said.
Unlike during his first term when he appointed only 36 ministers — one per state — he has decided to also appoint one per geo-political zone, bringing the total to 42, sources told TheCable.
About 12 ministers are said to be on the list.
The list was sent to the Senate on Monday evening via executive communication and is expected to be read on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday.
The Senate, which will be proceeding on a two-month recess on Thursday, is expected to screen the nominees.
Last week, the upper legislative chamber said if the list was not presented on time, it might have to proceed on its recess.
