Senate to Screen Ministerial Nominees before Going for Break – Lawan

BY OBUTE JAMES

The Nigerian Senators will screen Ministerial nominees yet to be submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari before proceeding for their annual leave.

This was made known during the plenary session on Wednesday by the Senate President, Senator Ahmed Lawan.

Lawan was reacting to a point of order raised by Senator Bassey Akpan that the delay in the submission of the list could affect the holidays of the senators.

Lawan said that President Buhari will submit the list of ministerial nominees for the consideration and approval of the red chamber very soon.

He explained that the lawmakers should not be in a hurry to go for the break until they are able to screen the ministerial nominees.

According to him Buhari’s government is working hard to ensure that the list is sent to the National Assembly early enough before the senators proceed on their annual two-month recess.
