Recalling that the Senate has given President Muhammadu Buhari deadline to submit his ministerial list. This list is finally released after 54 days of being sworn-in for a new tenure as president of the federal republic of Nigeria.

Although the delay was not a surprise to Nigerians as it took six (6) months for the President to release his ministerial list after he was sworn-in in 2015 for his first term in office.

However, what actually shocks Nigerians is the people included in the ministerial lists as different reactions as started coming up after Buhari’s ministerial lists came out.
