Tinubu’s Ministerial List Ready, Under Security Scrutiny

There are indications that the list containing the names of ministerial nominees in the President Bola Tinubu administration is ready.

According to a report by Sunday PUNCH, an “impeccable Presidency source” revealed that the list was already undergoing final security checks before submission to the Senate.

The source was said to have informed that the Department of State Services and members of the Presidential Strategic Team were running final checks on the people who had been listed as possible ministers.

They have the list already. Several names have been written against their respective offices. But they just have to find out and do some checks on a few of these names. That’s what is delaying the list. They are being very strategic with this,” PUNCH quotes the source.

“I learned that Tinubu’s ministerial list is almost done. He kept a core of ministers to himself, heavily influenced by the kitchen cabinet of his special advisers. Politicians are in Bolekaja over the rest. It’s a slugfest now,” the newspaper quotes another source in an earlier report.

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution mandates presidents and governors to submit the names of their ministerial and commissioner nominees within 60 days of taking the oath of office for confirmation by the Senate or the respective state Houses of Assembly. – PMN
