Ita Enang, senior special assistant to the president on national assembly matters (senate), says no date has been fixed for assigning portfolios to the ministerial nominees cleared by the senate.

Enang disclosed this at a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari had sent 43 names to the senate for screening.

On why screened and confirmed ministerial nominees were yet to be inaugurated, he said: “Mr President, upon receipt of communication from the national assembly will, on a date he will fix, notify the screened and cleared nominees.”

Enag,who also responded to a question on why the president did not attach portfolios to the nominees’ list, said the constitution did not oblige the president to do so.

He thanked the senate for its “patriotic decision” to extend the annual vacation and concentrate on the screening and confirmation of the nominees.
