President Bola Tinubu hit the ground running from day one when he resumed the office of the president and has been able to sustain the tempo in subsequent activities.
The actions of President Tinubu have increased the expectations of Nigerians from their new leader and the talk on who are those that would be his minister.
Why Tinubu must provide a list of ministers before July 28
Meanwhile, the president cannot keep the expectation for long and the list is expected to be out, latest by July 28. This is because, by July 28, it will be two months since he assumed to position of Nigerian leader.
A new law signed by immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari stated that the new president has only two months, which is 60 days to send his ministers’ names to the national assembly.
If President Tinubu did not restructure the current system, he is expected to submit the names of 27 ministers for confirmation by the Senate between now and July 28.

Tinubu inaugurates the national economic council headed by Shettima

The committee is headed by Vice President Kashim Shettima and is saddled with the responsibility of advising the president on the roadmap to the economy.
Addressing the council, President Tinubu said his administration has no excuse for failure because he, the vice president, and many others beg Nigerians to be given the responsibility.
