The senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu has said that the National Assembly current recess is responsible for the delay in announcement of ministerial list.
Shehu made this known while responding to question on a national television over the delay in the announcement of Buhari’s ministers saying that ministerial appointees are subject to the approval of the National Assembly which he said are currently not in session.
He promised that once the National Assembly reconvenes, the list would be forwarded to both chambers for screening and approval.
He, however, refused to give further details on the make up of the new cabinet but assured since president has moved into Aso Rock, Nigerians would see more action.
The National Assembly is expected to reconvene on Tuesday, June 23. Lawmakers went on recess immediately after principal members were elected. The election produced Bukola Saraki as the Senate president and Yukubu Dogara as the Speaker, which was against the wish of the All Progressives Congress.
