The presidency has said the reports and speculations about a list of ministerial nominees are “mere fabrications”.
There have been reports that the list will be sent to the senate this week.
Speaking with state house correspondents on Thursday, Dele Alake, special adviser on special duties, communications and strategy to the president, said President Bola Tinubu will make the list public when he is ready.
“About the ministerial list, the simple truth is that, you know, this is an executive presidency, we’re not running a parliamentary system,” he said.
“So the president, the bucks stops on his table, and he decides when it is fit and proper for him to make his cabinet list public.
“So, we are not unaware of all the speculations, and innuendos and rumours, all kinds of things in the media. Now, I as a media man, I chuckled to myself that people just want to sell, so they just fabricate.
“I can tell you all of those things you’ve been reading in the media are mere fabrications. There is no iota of truth in all of those things.
“When the president is good and ready, you will be the first to know about his intentions.”
