The President of the Senate was responding to a point of order raised by Senator Bassey Akpan to the effect that the delay in the submission of the list could affect the holidays of the senators.

The Senate had through its spokesman Adedayo Adeyeye on Tuesday lamented the delay by the executive to send the ministerial list.

Lawan, however, assured his colleagues and Nigerians that President Buhari would send the list to the Senate before the week runs out.

He also expressed confidence that the nominees would be screened by the upper chamber before the annual vacation which would commence on July 26.
