The anticipation surrounding the announcement of the ministerial list by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is expected to come to an end no later than July 28.

According to the provisions of this law, if President Tinubu chooses not to make any major changes to the existing system, he will be required to present the names of 27 ministers for confirmation by the Senate within the specified timeframe. This process ensures that the executive branch is effectively constituted, allowing for the smooth functioning of the government and the implementation of policies and programs.

As Nigerians eagerly await the unveiling of the ministerial list, it is expected that President Tinubu will carefully select competent and capable individuals who will serve in key ministerial positions. The appointment of ministers plays a vital role in shaping the direction and policies of the government, and it is essential that those chosen possess the necessary qualifications, expertise, and dedication to effectively fulfill their roles.

It remains to be seen how President Tinubu will approach this crucial task of selecting his ministerial team. As the clock ticks towards the July 28 deadline, Nigerians eagerly await the announcement and the subsequent confirmation process that will follow in the Senate.

Last week, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu sent a letter to the Senate, seeking their approval for the appointment of 20 special advisers. Subsequently, the request was granted by the 9th Senate.

It is worth noting that the appointment of special advisers does not necessarily require legislative approval. However, to demonstrate transparency and adherence to due process, the president sought the Senate’s consent for these appointments. Consequently, on Thursday, June 15, President Tinubu officially announced the appointment of eight special advisers.

This move reflects the president’s commitment to assembling a team of experienced individuals who will provide expert advice and support in various areas of governance. The appointed special advisers are expected to contribute their expertise and assist the president in effectively executing his duties and responsibilities
