Tinubu Set to Unleash a Surprise: New Ministries on the Horizon as Second Batch of Ministerial List Nears Release, Gbajabiamila Reveals

President Bola Tinubu’s administration has hinted at the possibility of creating new ministries in the country. This is according to the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, who disclosed this to Channels Television on Thursday in Abuja.

In an interview with Channels Television, Femi Gbajabiamila, the Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, confirmed that the administration is considering the creation of new ministries in the country.

“Mr President intends to separate portfolios or restructure the ministries in such a way you might be hearing of new ministries that were not standalone ministries before. So the process continues,” he stated.

Gbajabiamila further explained that the aim is to separate portfolios or restructure the existing ministries to potentially form new standalone ministries. This restructuring process is ongoing.

Tinubu submitted the ministerial list to the National Assembly through Gbajabiamila before it was read by Senate President, Godswill Akpabio.

President Tinubu submitted his list of ministerial nominees to the National Assembly through Gbajabiamila, who then had it read by Senate President Godswill Akpabio.

Noting that the nominees were chosen after undergoing thorough personal screening by the President, Gbajabiamila said that the second part comprising 13 names would be sent to the Assembly.

He added that this was part of the process of having a cabinet for the administration.

Gbajabiamila confirmed that the nominees went through a rigorous personal screening process by President Tinubu. He also mentioned that the second part of the list, which consists of 13 names, will be forwarded to the Assembly. This is an important step towards the formation of the administration’s cabinet.

“As you know, he had 60 days from the time of inauguration, as stipulated in the Constitution. He has fulfilled that requirement of the constitution by submitting 28 names today.

“As his letter stated, and was read on the floor of the Senate, the remaining names, not sure how many, probably about 12, maybe 13, will be forwarded to the Senate in the coming days.

“As far as the nominees themselves are concerned, and like I said, Mr President took his time to sift through those names,” he stated.

Gbajabiamila highlighted that President Tinubu met the constitutional requirement of submitting his ministerial list within the 60-day timeline since his inauguration. He submitted 28 names to the National Assembly, while the remaining 12 or 13 names will be sent in the near future. Gbajabiamila also emphasized that President Tinubu carefully considered each nominee’s suitability for the role.
