He also explained that he didn’t promise Nigerians the ministerial list this week.
When asked if he was now in possession of the ministerial list, Lawan said: “Well, I came for a dinner and the process of receiving list is not at dinners.
“That is all I have to say about this.”
Reminded that he promised Nigerians that the list will get to the Senate this week, he said: “I never did.
“Let me take this opportunity to correct that.
“A senator raised a point of order under personal explanation and he said we should be sent the list of ministers by the executive arm of government.
“And in my response I said the executive is working so hard to ensure that the list of Nigerians that will help this Administration work is going to be constituted, we could even receive it this week.
“Could is conditional and I will urge everybody here to report it as it is.”
