Senate ends seating without ministerial list

Senate ends seating without ministerial list

Yvonne Williams

The senate this morning began its sitting without senate president Bukola Saraki reading the much awaited ministerial list.

The tradition in the senate has always been that any communication from the President is read before the commencement of proper legislative business but that did not happen as Senator Bukola went straight into legislative matters.

The minority leader of the senate Godswill Apakbio observed the abnormal and immediately raised a point of order.

“The President had promised to announce his ministerial nominees today and the Senate President has finished reading the days announcements without it, why?,” Akpabio said.
The senate president however did not reply him. Senate leader, Bala Ibn Na’Allah said the legislative day had not elapsed and so more everyone should be patient.

Later on:

The senate has ended its sitting today without the much-awaited ministerial list. The senators deliberated on Nigeria at 55 and afterwards adjourned sitting to a new legislative date. Buhari had promised to release the ministerial list before the end of this month.
