NVS recalls that on the last day of September, the President had submitted the first batch of ministerial nominees containing 21 names to the senate president.‎ Days into the following month, he submitted another list containing 16 names to Saraki.

Meanwhile, the nomination of Musa Ibeto from Niger state was later withdrawn by the President who cited an administrative error‎.

The senate confirmed all 36 nominees as ministers after a screening exercise that lasted five days. is[1][3] is[1][2]
