President Muhammadu Buhari has submitted his ministerial list to the Senate, Daily Trust is reporting.

Citing Presidency sources, the newspaper reported that Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, submitted the names to the Senate.

The president had promised to announce members of his cabinet not later than September, so, Nigerians are waiting with bated breaths to know whether Mr. Buhari will keep to his word as the month ends today.

Many Senators contacted yesterday about the nominees, skipped the subject as they did not want to be seen as speculating about the content of the message delivered by Senator Enang.

But sources suggested yesterday that those likely to make it into Buhari’s cabinet are those that have been seen regularly with him in recent weeks, either in Nigeria or on his foreign trips.

“Going by that postulation”, the sources said, “one can safely say that former Ekiti state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi would make it”.

One of our sources said those who could also make it are former Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Abdurrahman Dambazau (retd.); former CBN governor, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo; and three former governors from the south.

A former House of Representatives member, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, former governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, are among those also believed to be included in the list of nominees.

Oyinlola is believed to be former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s nominee.

“Whatever the case, everything will be clear as the Senate resumes sitting today”, the source said.
