    President Muhammadu Buhari has finally sent his list of ministerial nominees to the senate.

    Unlike during his first term when he appointed only 36 ministers; one per state; he has decided to also appoint one per geo-political zone, bringing the total to 42.

    The list was sent to the senate on Monday evening via executive communication and is expected to be read on the floor of the senate on Tuesday.

    Contrary to speculations, only about 12 ministers will be re-appointed from the former cabinet.

    On the list announced by Senate President Ahmed Lawan is former ministers Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi, Ogbonnaya Onu.

    Also on the list are former Osun Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, former Benue Governor George Akume and former Bayelsa State Governor Timipre Sylva.
