The Presidency on Wednesday, September 30, 2015, said President Muhammadu Buhari would keep his promise of making public his ministerial list latest by the end of September.

The Senate had on Wednesday adjourned its plenary to Tuesday, October 8, 2015, without reading the names of the would-be ministers.

Also, while addressing newsmen after today’s plenary, Senate spokesperson, Dino Melaye, said the Senate was yet to receive the much-anticipated ministerial list from the President.

“We are still waiting for the ministerial list from the President. I want to advise that there is no need for agitation because September expires by midnight and the office of the Senate President is open,” Melaye said.

According to him, as soon as the Senate gets the list, it would be made public through the media.

However, speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) to the President , Femi Adesina, said the September deadline given by the President was still in order since it was not yet midnight.

“Yes, I agree that today is the last day of September and the President promised to make the list available in September. But there is no cause for alarm since the day is not yet over. September will come to and by 11:59pm,” he said.
