Keyamo Among New Nominees in President Tinubu's Cabinet Picks
In a thrilling turn of events, Festus Keyamo has expressed immense joy and gratitude following his ministerial nomination by President Bola Tinubu. The former Minister of State for Labor and Productivity, who previously served under President Muhammadu Buhari, was announced as one of the nominees during a Senate plenary session on Friday.
President Tinubu, in a letter addressed to the Senate on Friday, revealed Keyamo as one of the two new nominees added to the second batch of ministerial nominees announced earlier in the week. This move has further strengthened the ranks of potential ministers under the new administration.
Keyamo, known for his tireless dedication to public service and legal prowess, took to his verified Twitter handle to express his appreciation for the nomination. In an ecstatic post, he wrote, “He’s a miracle-working God. He’s the Alpha and Omega, He’s a miracle-working God!” The nomination has been well-received by his followers and political associates who anticipate seeing him contribute significantly to the nation’s development if confirmed.
During the same Senate plenary, it was announced that Maryam Shetty, who was initially among the 19 nominees read on Wednesday, had been replaced by Mariya Mahmoud. This substitution came as part of the ongoing deliberations and considerations in the process of forming the new cabinet.
With Keyamo’s inclusion in the list, President Tinubu’s nominee count now stands at an impressive 48, reflecting the president’s commitment to assembling a diverse and capable team to tackle the nation’s challenges.
The nomination is subject to the Senate’s approval after thorough scrutiny and vetting to ensure the suitability and competence of each candidate. The nation eagerly awaits the confirmation of Festus Keyamo and the other nominees, looking forward to witnessing their contributions to the country’s progress and prosperity.
As the Senate continues its screening process, all eyes remain on the political landscape as Nigerians await the announcement of the final ministerial lineup that will steer the nation towards its desired goals. The administration’s commitment to governance and the public’s interest in the nominees’ track records and promises make this a crucial and exciting period in Nigeria’s political history.
