The Senate is in a closed-door meeting reportedly necessitated by the list of ministerial nominees believed to have been submitted by the Presidency.
Soon after taking petitions, which is the fifth item in the Order Paper, the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, announced that the Senators should go into an executive session after majority leader, Opeyemi Bamidele made the announcement.
Recall that there was a meeting the President of the Senate had with major stakeholders yesterday. It lasted for several hours.
Reports say 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.
