Must read

ABUJA, Nigeria — The Senate is poised to screen and confirm the last batch of ministerial nominees on Saturday, August 5, 2023, wrapping up an intensive process that will finalize the appointments for the 48 ministers set to join the government’s executive branch.

Initially due to begin its long holiday at the end of July, the upper legislative chamber suspended the break to ensure that the screening and confirmation of all ministerial nominees are completed before proceeding on the annual recess.

The Saturday’s Order Paper, containing the list of the last batch of nominees, was released to the public and includes the following individuals:

  • Lola Ade-John – Lagos
  • Bosun Tijani – Ogun
  • Dr. Isiak Salako – Ogun
  • Dr. Tahir Mamman – Adamawa
  • Uba Maigari Ahmadu – Tarabara
  • Dr. Mariya Mahmoud – Kano
  • Festus Keyamo, SAN – Delta

The screening process is expected to be rigorous, as the Senate undertakes its constitutional role of vetting the qualifications and preparedness of each nominee to serve in their respective ministerial positions.

The decision to continue working through the holiday underscores the importance of the confirmation process and the government’s commitment to ensuring a seamless transition into the new term.

The nominees, representing various states and professional backgrounds, are considered critical players in the nation’s governance.

Among the nominees, Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria from Delta State, has drawn significant attention due to his legal expertise and prominent role in national affairs.

Confirming the 48 nominees on Saturday will pave the way for the administration to proceed with its policy agenda unimpeded, as the full cabinet will be in place.

Political observers and analysts are keenly watching the process, as the composition of the new ministerial team will provide insight into the government’s priorities and strategic direction for the coming years.

The swift action by the Senate reflects the urgency and importance placed on governance, with the expectation that the newly confirmed ministers will play a vital role in implementing the administration’s vision for national development.
