Ministerial list: Buhari pleads with PDP Senators
Thinking that some of his ministerial nominees may not scale through the Senate screening, expected to commence next Tuesday,President Muhammadu Buhari,Tuesday,begged senators of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,for a soft landing for the nominees.
The president, who is said to be highly disturbed that without personal intervention, some of his party chiefs instrumental to his success at the president election would be frustrated during the screening exercise, has asked his Senior Special Assistant to the National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, to immediate reached out to the PDP senators.
The development came just as the All Progressives Congress,APC spokesman and ministerial nominee, Alhaji Lai Mohammed engaged former Speaker,House of Representatives and current governor of Sokoto State,Aminu Tambuwal to beg the Senate President,Bukola Saraki, for a soft landing at the screening exercise.
