The Nigerian Senate has gone into a closed-door meeting over the ministerial list sent to it by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
According to Vanguard, after taking petitions, which is the fifth item in the Order Paper, Senate President Godswill Akpabio announced that the Senators should go into an executive session after the leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele (APC, Ekiti Central) had made the announcement.
The Senate entered into the closed-door session at 11.59 a.m.
It was gathered that the meeting may be about the ministerial nominees from President Bola Tinubu.
A source told Vanguard that the list is already creating problems among the Senators, which explained the need for the meeting.
The source told Vanguard that the President of the Senate was already in possession of the list, which may be read after the closed-door meeting, or next week since there will be no plenary tomorrow.
