JUST IN: Tinubu’s Ministerial List Is Ready, Akpabio Read Names Of Nominees
The ministerial list of President Bola Tinubu is anticipated to be read aloud by Senate President Godswill Akpabio today (Thursday) during plenary session.
There are indications that the list is now in the National Assembly.
Tinubu, who assumed office as Nigeria’s President on May 29, 2023, constitutionally has 60 days to form his cabinet.
At the Eagle Square, venue of Tinubu’s inauguration, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and one of the President’s righthand men, James Faleke, said the former Lagos State governor would unveil members of his cabinet within 60 days.
Faleke was the APC Presidential Campaign Council Secretary and lawmaker representing Ikeja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives for the 10th National Assembly.
Many analysts had attributed the slow take-off of the Muhammadu Buhari administration to his late announcement of ministers. Buhari, who handed over to Tinubu after eight years, unveiled his cabinet six months after his inauguration in 2015. But Tinubu is expected to do things differently.
