Ignore the rumor, Tinubu’ll reveal ministerial nominees when ready — Presidency

Dele Alake, special adviser on special duties, communications and strategy to the president, says reports and speculations about a list of ministerial nominees are “mere fabrications”.

There have been reports that the list will be sent to the senate this week.

Speaking with state house correspondents on Thursday, Alake said President Bola Tinubu will make the list public when he is ready.

“When the President is good and ready. You will be the first to know about his intentions” Alake said while briefing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.

He said: “About the ministerial list, the simple truth is this is an executive presidency. We’re not running a parliamentary system.

“So the President, the bucks stops on his table, and he decides when it’s fit and proper for him to make his cabinet list.

“We are not unaware of all the speculations, and innuendos and rumours, all kinds of things in the media. Now, as a media man, I chuckled to myself that people just want to sell, so they just fabricate. There is no iota of truth in all of those things. When the President is good and ready, you will be the first to know about his intentions.”

The presidential aide said Tinubu was still within the 60-day window for President and all governors to announce their Ministers and Commissioners, respectively.
