In a letter delivered by his Chief of Staff, Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, to the Senate during plenary on Thursday, July 27, 2023, the President sought confirmation of 28 ministerial nominees into his cabinet.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, read the letter on the floor of the red chamber.

As widely speculated before now, former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, made the cut alongside other immediate past governors of Kaduna, Jigawa and Ebonyi States, Nasir El-Rufai, Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, and Senator David Umahi, respectively.
