[dropcap type=”1″]N[/dropcap]igeria’s ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) advised Nigerians not to believe the ministerial list trending on social media, but to be patient for the official announcement by the Nigerian Senate on Tuesday.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said whatever names currently published in the media, no matter how authoritative, were mere speculations and should not be accepted as the names sent by the President to the Senate.
“Unfortunately, the Senate is yet to read the list, so whatever you read anywhere is mere speculation. Not until the Senate President reads out the list on Tuesday, it will be too premature for anybody to start making a comment on who and who is on the list,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
“But from what I take from what the President said this morning (Thursday), people think there has been undue delay but he explained that the delay was due to the fact that there were no proper handover notes and that the transition committee was not helped much because the transition committee did not receive the handover notes until about four days to the handover,” he added.
