Senate to get list of Ministerial nominees this week – Lawan

 

President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan has disclosed that the Senate will, receive the list of Ministerial Nominees from President Muhammadu Buhari before the end of this week.

 

 

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 to Senator Ahmad Lawan, the Executive was working hard to ensure that it makes available to the Senate, the list before the end of the 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.

 

According to him, there was the need for the Executive to hasten the process of forwarding to the Senate, the Ministerial list in order for their holiday not to be affected. It would be recalled that the Senate had said on Tuesday that it was not in the position to draw a ministerial list for President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

Speaking with Journalists, Chairman, Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Media and Public Affairs Committee, Senator Adedayo Adedayo, APC, Ekiti South had said,  “that is the prerogative of the executive, we are not going to their job, I’m not going to say anything about that, the senate cannot generate a list of its own. “It is the prerogative if the President to send the list of his nominees to the Senate and when he does that we will look at and consider it”.
