On the transmission of ministerial nominee list by President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Adeyeye said the Senate would wait until the presidency does the needful. “That is the prerogative of the executive.

It is not even within our powers to even advice. We will wait until the matter is transmitted to us.

“The executive is aware of the timetable of the Senate. There is a particular time the Senate will go on recess. That being in mind they should be mindful of when they will carry out this constitutional responsibility,” he said. The senator said his committee was yet to be briefed on the latest invasion of the National Assembly by Shiites members. He promised to ‘look into it’ once briefed.
