The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has clarified his comment about President Muhammadu Buhari submitting the ministerial list to the senate this week.

Lawan spoke to State House correspondents, Thursday night after a meeting National Assembly leadership held with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

He said: “Let me take the opportunity to correct that. A senator raised a point of order under personal explanation.

“He said we should be sent the list of the ministers by the executive arm of government.

“In my response, I said the executive is working so hard to ensure that the list of Nigerians that will help this administration work is going to be transmitted and we could even receive it this week.

“’We could’ (choice of phrase) is conditional and I will urge everybody here to report it as it is.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that others at the meeting included the Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila and the Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Idris Wase.
