Nigeria: A Breakdown of the 28 Ministerial Nominees.

The slow take-off of the Muhammadu Buhari administration was attributed to his late announcement of ministers by some analysts. In 2015, Buhari, Bola Tinubu’s predecessor who served two terms (eight years), revealed his cabinet six months after he was inaugurated. Tinubu however transmitted his ministerial list to the National Assembly a day before 28th July, 2023, the expiration of his 60-day constitutional deadline. Moreover, the Fifth Amendment to the 1999 Constitution authorizes the President to transmit the names of his ministerial nominees to the National Assembly within 60 days of assuming office.

It is indeed very good that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was able to send the list of his Ministerial Nominees to the Red Chamber for confirmation before the date of expiration. This can be said to reflect the level of his preparedness for the position of President. More so, the citizens anticipate the transmission of the Supplementary Ministerial list to the Red Chamber, desiring it to be released as stated in the letter of the President to the Senate, when the first list of the Ministerial Nominees was earlier sent to the Red Chamber.
