Senate Transmits List of 45 Ministerial Nominees To Presidency

……..Excludes Okotete, El-Rufai, Danladi

The National Assembly has formally delivered the verified list of 45 ministerial nominees to the Presidency.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Abdullahi Gumel told newsmen in Abuja that the list was sent to the Presidency around 11:30pm on Monday.

Recall that the Senate, on Monday, ratified the appointments of 45 ministerial nominees while deferring the approval of three others, including former Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Sen. Abubakar Danladi, and Hon. Stella Okotete.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio had told newsmen that the trio’s confirmation had been postponed due to pending security clearances.

“The list is now with the Executive, which means that the ministerial nominees were cleared by the Senate and confirmed”, Gumel said in a press briefing on Tuesday.

He commended the senators for sacrificing their recess to conclude the assessment and endorsement of the nominees.

“The interesting thing about what happened in the Senate is that, there wasn’t opposition. The passion and commitment they showed to the work is commendable.

“I’m very grateful to the 10th Senate for making our jobs, those of us who represent the executive, very easy and very interesting.

“We have increased the number of ministerial nominees from what we used to have; that is, 42.

“Our President sent 48 so we felt what would happen is that some of the ministries which are so big are to be merged together or separated for easy oversight by the Senate, like the Ministry of Works and Housing, which we felt should be separated.

“This is so that they can accommodate the number of ministers.

“The President will give them portfolios so that the government can get going. It is the prerogative of the President,” Gumel said.
