The Presidency has hinted the Senate about possible ministerial appointments early next year, Guardian reports.
Sources said on Sunday that the President is planning to reshuffle his cabinet and drop 10 ministers.
It was gathered that the Presidency has lobbied leaders of the Senate to secure prompt and less rancorous screening process.
Two positions are currently vacant in the President’s cabinet.
Minister of State for Labour, Barrister James Ocholi had died in an auto crash this year while Minister of Environment was appointed UN Deputy Secretary-General last week.
“There is an understanding that in the new year, one of the key assignments the Senate will undertake aside the consideration of the 2017 Budget is the screening of some ministerial nominees who will be replacing some of the Ministers who are soon to be asked to leave the cabinet,” a source said.
