In keeping to his promise to send the ministerial nominee list to the National Assembly in September, President Muhammadu Buhari finally delivered the much awaited ministerial list to Senate President Bukola Saraki at 5.30 pm today. It was delivered by Chief of Staff, Malam Abba Kyari and Senator Ita Enang, the Special Senior Assistant on National Assembly matters.
A tweet by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, confirming the receipt of the President’s letter has gone viral. Nigerians had waited since morning for the list. And when the Senate president did not read it during the plenary of the Senate this morning, there were fears that the president would not honour his pledge.
