President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial list would be forwarded to the National Assembly within 48 hours, according to Senate Leader Micheal Bamidele.
Bamidele made the announcement on Tuesday at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja, during the public presentation of books commemorating his 60th birthday.
He stated that Tinubu was unable to attend the ceremony due to the compilation of the cabinet list.
“So, Mr President prayed for me. We should tell the rest of Nigerians to pray for him to be able to make the right decision within the next 24 hours so that when Nigerians hear the list of his ministers, they will say yes…this is uncommon,” Bamidele said.
“Join us to pray for Mr president. He needed to be away from any kind of influence.”
Also speaking at the event, Toyin Ogundipe, former vice-chancellor of the University of Lagos, called on political officeholders to cut the cost of governance and reduce the number of vehicles in their convoys.
“There is a need for our leaders to reduce the number of vehicles in their conveys so that Nigerians will know that you feel their pains,” Ogundipe said.
“There is nothing Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) and Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) are doing in the entourage of the president and vice president once you have police in the convoy.”
