Sources within the Presidency have indicated that President Bola Tinubu may present his ministerial list after the Sallah break.
According to The PUNCH, a source within the presidency who pleaded anonymity stated that the ministerial list which is almost ready will be sent to the national assembly.
“I learned that Tinubu’s ministerial list is almost done. He kept a core of ministers to himself, heavily influenced by the kitchen cabinet of SAs.
“The politicians are in ‘Bolekaja’ over the rest. It’s a slugfest now,”another presidential source stated.
Recall that in March, Alake, then Special Adviser to the President-elect, said Tinubu would constitute his cabinet within one month of assuming office.
He said, “I told you in an earlier interview that it didn’t take Asiwaju more than three weeks to form his cabinet as governor.
“That was as at that time. I think 60 days is even too much.
“A month, maximum, is enough for any serious government to form its cabinet and put a structure of government in place after the swearing-in.”
Already Tinubu has appointed former speaker of the house of representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila as his chief of staff, while also appointment George Akume as the Secretary to the State Government.
