Ministerial List: Wike, El-Rufai, Oyetola make list as Akpabio unveils nominees today

The immediate past Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and his colleague from Kaduna, Nasir El-Rufai, have made the list of ministerial nominees.

The PUNCH learnt that President Bola Tinubu forwarded the ministerial list to the Senate in the wee hours of Thursday.

The list is coming two days before the President’s deadline as stipulated by the constitution as amended by the ninth Assembly.

There have been agitations over the ministerial list particularly due to Tinubu’s long silence over the list.

Tinubu, according to the 1999 constitution as amended by the Ninth Senate, has barely two days left out of the 60 days deadline stipulated for the President to unveil his cabinet members.

Earlier, the media aide to the Senate President, Jackson Udom, had said that the authentic ministerial list of President Bola Tinubu would be unveiled on Thursday.

He further urged Nigerians to stop speculating and wait for the unveiling of the nominees.

Commenting on the purported social media list, he said, “I saw the purported list too just like every other person did, let’s wait till tomorrow (today). Don’t speculate, tomorrow (today), you’ll see the list.”
