Shuaibu who spoke in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Yola, said the action was to give a sense of belonging to every constituency in the state.
Shuaibu who did not give the total number of nominees in the list, said 10 slots were reserved for technocrats.

He explained that the list had been sent to the security agencies for screening, adding that very soon it would be sent to the House of Assembly for screening.
Shuaibu also said that the recent APC state chairmen meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja was fruitful, adding that he gave an assurance to protect the interest of Nigerians.
