    Abuja, FCT – It has been made known that President Bola Tinubu is prepared to submit the second group of his ministerial nominations to the Senate today, August 2, for consideration.

    The Punch said that the name would be revealed on Tuesday, August 1, or early Wednesday, August 2, citing a credible source in the Red Chamber.

    Today, the Senate will release the names of the second group of ministerial nominees.

    The names of the next set of candidates will be read aloud on the Senate floor on Wednesday, according to the source.

    The member claims that the Upper Chamber will finish reviewing the 28 nominees that the president had already provided their names for today and will then begin reviewing the remaining candidates.

    The senator emphasized that the Senate is prepared to finish vetting the nominations by Monday, August 7.

    The Senate intends to conclude the assessment of ministerial nominations by Monday.

    He said:

    “We want to conclude with the screening before we go on our recess. We wouldn’t want a situation where we would go on recess and now start calling lawmakers back to come for screening.”

    Recall that the Senate on Monday, July 31, screened 14 of the 28 ministerial nominees who President Tinubu earlier forwarded to the lawmakers.

    On Tuesday, August 1, nine of the remaining 14 nominees were screened during plenary, including Nasir El-Rufai, the former governor of Kaduna State, and David Umahi, the immediate past governor of Ebonyi State.
