During the presentation of the first batch of the list, Minority Leader of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio said that the President should have sent a complete list so that all States would have been represented.

Other PDP Senators also moved to oppose the presentation of an incomplete list but Saraki only noted his observation as the Senate proceeded with other businesses
