President Buhari’s Ministerial List Arrives On Senate Leader Bukola Saraki’s Table


The much expected Ministerial list which President Muhammadu Buhari promised to get out before September has finally arrived  Senate President Olubukola Saraki’s table.

Saraki  confirmed in a twitted message that he had  received the ministerial list officially from the  President who arrived Nigeria from the World leaders’ trip to the United States .

The  list of the Ministerial nominees  was submitted to Senate president  at the National Assembly buildings in Abuja.

The Senate earlier had twitted on Wednesday afternoon that as at 4pm, nothing had been received and that the Nigerian public would be informed as soon as the list had landed. The twitted message was sent just before 7.00pm on Wednesday evening.

Buhari earlier had indicated his intention to take charge of the most lucrative of all the Nigerian Ministries, the oil ministry and prior to this time has been  running the nation with permanent secretaries (ie the civil servants) who overlook the affairs of government ministries. He has indicated that a junior minister would be given the responsibility of  overseeing  the day-to-day runnning of the oil ministry which provides the bulk of the government resources.  Femi Adesina, the president’s spokesman had  confirmed to AFP.

The names on the  nominees list were not revealed  and it may take almost a week before Nigerians come to reality about which name goes to which ministry as Nigeria Independence is being celebrated on Thursday October 1. With the official resumption day from the Independence break  being Tuesday, October 6 2015, there is more time to wait as the public waits in anxiety.
