BREAKING: See COMPLETE cabinet list Buhari sent to Senate

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally sent his list of ministerial nominees to the Senate. 

Unlike during his first term when he appointed only 36 ministers, Buhari has decided to also appoint one per geo-political zone, bringing the total to 43.

It took Buhari six months to appoint ministers during his first tenure. But the Nigerian president forwarded his cabinet list to senators on Monday, almost two months after his second term inauguration.

The list was sent to the senate on Monday evening via executive communication and is expected to be read on the floor of the senate on Tuesday. The senate, which will be proceeding on a two-month recess on Thursday, is expected to screen the nominees.

Some ministers from Buhari’s first term have reportedly been named on the new list.

Some of the names on the list include

  • Former Akwa Ibom State governor Godswill Akpabio
  • Former Benue State governor George Akume
  • Buhari campaign spokesperson Festus Keyamo
  • Former governor of Ekiti State Niyi Adebayo
