Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will submit the list of ministerial nominees for the consideration and approval of the red chamber this week.

Lawan, who stated this at plenary on Wednesday, said the executive arm of government was working hard to ensure that the list was ready early enough before the Senators proceed on their annual two-month recess.

Lawan was reacting to a point of order raised by Senator Bassey Akpan to the effect that the delay in the submission of the list could affect the holidays of the senators.

Lawan assured his colleagues that President Buhari would send the list to the Senate before the week runs out.

He also expressed confidence that the nominees would be screened by the upper chamber before the annual vacation which would commence on July 26.
