According to Vanguard,President Mohammadu Buhari is set to unveil list of his Ministers next week baring any unforeseen circumstances that may prevent it.

Two of those expected to make the new list of Ministers are the immediate past governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fasola who may be appointed the Minister of Justice and the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF and former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi.

Similarly, former Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Abdurrahman Dambazau (retd) may also come in for a very sensitive security appointment.

It will be recalled that Dambazau headed the Security and Intelligence Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council just as Fayemi also headed that of Policy, Research and Strategy.

The list may also be sent to the National Assembly which had formally resumed duties following its inauguration on Tuesday. A source from Buhari’s political party, the All Progressives Congress, APC told Vanguard that the president had had to delay the list because the 8th parliament was yet to come on stream.

However, the list would be received by the Clerk of the National Assembly on behalf of the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki who would then make it available for screening immediately the senate resumes.

It will be recalled that the two chambers of the federal legislature adjourned on Wednesday to resume plenary on June 23.

One of the reasons for the two weeks break was to enable the authorities of the National Assembly to allocate offices for the newly elected lawmakers.

Apart from the Ministerial appointments, it was also learnt that the president  would also make some others necessary appointments. This would include appointment into the Office of the Secretary to Government of the Federation.
