The 1999 constitution, as amended, mandates that each state must have at least one Minister representing them in the federal cabinet. The absence of nominees from these 11 states raises concerns about equitable representation and inclusivity in the country’s governance.

As President Tinubu’s list undergoes screening in the national assembly, there is an expectation that a supplementary list will be sent to the Senate to fulfill the constitutional requirement of representation from all states.

Citizens and political observers are closely watching the developments to see how President Tinubu addresses the representation gap and ensures a balanced and diverse administration that reflects the interests of all Nigerians.
