Buhari’s Ministerial List
Senators loyal to Senate President, Bukola Saraki may reject President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list and overturn all previous appointments.
The Nation reports that there were signs yesterday that pro-Saraki senators may have “laid an ambush” for President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list, which is being expected at the Senate “any moment from now”.
A source said, ”They may reject the list and all appointments made so far by the President in protest against Saraki’s trial”.
Another source said,
”They know that the President will not present imposed candidates as ministerial nominees and they are out for a pound of flesh as from September 29 because the Code of Conduct Bureau( CCB) dragged the President of the Senate to the Code of Conduct Tribunal(CCT)”.
A government source said:
“The whole plot is aimed at frustrating the President and cause a political crisis in the country.
“They have this feeling that they must pull down the house due to the arraignment of Saraki by CCT. In spite of denial, they are pointing accusing fingers at the Presidency for Saraki’s travails.”
