As Nigerians await the ministerial list of President Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Secretary, Senator Iyiola Omisore has hinted at the possibility of the President merging some ministries.
The APC chieftain, who spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme on Tuesday, said the size of the President’s cabinet will be between 36 and 42.
“The Constitution says a minister per state, that is 36 and one per zone making 42, at the prerogative of the President. So it can either make 36 minimum or 42 the highest,” he said.
“We are still consulting with the party, we are looking at the structure of the ministries. We are likely to structure the ministries to reflect Nigerians’ yearnings today, either merging some, rebranding some, naming some just to gather the agenda of Renewed Hope.”
