There had been speculations that the ministerial list would be unveiled last week, but it never happened.

Based on new law put in place by his predecessor, President Tinubu and all the newly elected state governors must submit the names of their ministerial nominees or commissioner nominees to the National/State Assemblies for confirmation within 60 days of taking the oath of office.

This implies that the president must submit the lists of nominees for ministers before the end of July.

Why ministerial list was not unveiled last week – Sources

The Punch cited sources at the National Assembly as stating the letter containing the names of the ministerial nominees got to the Senate President last week.

They, however, noted that the unveiling was delayed due to some last-minute adjustments.

One of the sources who is said to be a lawmaker noted that the names would be read out this week but could not tell when exactly.

“The names of the ministerial nominees will be out this week,” the source was quoted as saying.
