Why Buhari must submit names nominees in five days

President Muhammadu Buhari has till Friday to submit the list of ministerial nominees for screening by the Senate.

This is because the senate would proceed on its two-month annual recess as from July 26 to September 26.

Buhari, who was sworn in on May 29, has continued to delay the submission of the ministerial list, arguing that he will need to take his time to appoint the people he knows.

The Chairman, Senate ad hoc Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, on Saturday, told reporters that the red chamber would proceed on its annual two-month recess this week if the Senate did not get the ministerial list by Friday.

He said, “If the list does not come before Friday, the Senate will proceed on its annual recess. We are not giving the president an ultimatum. The schedule of the Senate will go ahead if the Senate does not receive the list. The list is the only thing that can hold us back.”

He, however, added that Buhari was at liberty to send the list whenever he pleases and that the Senate also had a duty to consider it in the overriding national interest.

He added, “However, any time they submit the list, we will consider it. It is not our responsibility to put pressure on the President. We can be recalled whenever the list is submitted even if we are already on recess, in the overriding national interest.’’
