Buhari nominates 43 ministers, sends list to senate (full list)

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 43.

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.
