Presidency Source tells #HNNAfrica 2nd #MinisterialList is the "REAL LIST" #TheList #HNNGov

President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, is currently on trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for alleged false asset declaration when he was governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011. Now the rules just got stricter. Every nominee must submit their assets. That first ministerial list is the difficult nominee list as a presidency source tells me. The second list is the REAL LIST which will be passed faster!

The Senate on Thursday released the criteria for screening President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees. The screening is scheduled to commence on October 13.

On top of the demands from the nominees is: come with a proof that you have declared your assets.

Briefing journalists at the end of plenary, Chairman, Senate ad hoc Committee on Media and Publicity, Dino Melaye, said the upper chamber at its closed session agreed on hurdles to be scaled by the nominees before their eventual clearance.

Melaye explained that the senators insisted that each nominee must submit proofs of their asset declaration; must have their nomination approved by two senators from their states; and must have a clean bill of health from its public petitions committee, among other conditions.

Submission of asset declaration form was not included in the modalities for screening ministerial nominees in 2011.
