Lawan says ministerial list to be ready this week, defends Buhari’s delay

Senate president Ahmad Lawan, has said on Wednesday that the Senate will before the end of this week, receive the list of Ministerial Nominees from President Muhammadu Buhari.

Lawan said this while responding to a point of Order raised by Senator Albert Bassey Akpan, PDP, Akwa Ibom North East who expressed worries over the delay in the presentation of the list by the Executive to the Legislative arm. 

According the President of the Senate, the Executive was working hard to ensure that it makes available to the Senate, the list before the end of this week.

Earlier, Akpan who came under Order 43 said that it was worrisome that the list was not yet made available to the Senate, especially against the backdrop that in the next two weeks, the lawmakers will embark on the traditional two months recess.

“There is a particular time of the year, when the Senate will go on a recess that being in mind, they should be mindful of when to carry out this constitutional responsibility because the Senate itself has its own timetable.”
