We’re yet to get ministerial list – Dino Melaye

The Senate on Wednesday said it was yet to receive the ministerial list from the Presidency.
Reports were rife that President Muhammadu Buhari had concluded work on the list and sent it to the Senate for the screening of the nominees.

However, as at the close of plenary on Wednesday, the names of the nominees were not read out.

The spokesperson of the Senate, Senator Dino Melaye, said the ministerial list was yet to be received by the Red Chamber.

Melaye said there was no need for agitation as the deadline given by Buhari, the end of September, was still hours away.

He promised that the Senate will conduct proper screening of the nominees, adding that those with moral issues will not be cleared.

The Senate has adjourned till Tuesday.

There will be no sitting on Thursday as the nation will be marking its 55th independence anniversary.
