According to the new law, the president, and governors of the 36 states, are expected to send names of members of their cabinets, including ministers and commissioners to the national and state assembly within 60 days for confirmation.

However, for President Tinubu to make most of his cabinet members, he did not necessarily need to wait for the 10th assembly to be inaugurated on June 10.

Though, aside from ministers, some other appointments of the president must pass through the national assembly, such as security chiefs, for confirmation.

He added that the most hated candidate will perform wonders in the life and eye of his critics, though the beginning would be tough.
