It was Mr. Buhari’s first correspondence to the National Assembly since assuming office Friday.

The appointments would be the second for the new president who only named his spokespersons and chief of protocol on Sunday.

Mr. Buhari has not given a hint of those he would name as advisers or ministers.

Earlier, the Senate had congratulated Mr. Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and all the 29 governors who were sworn in on Saturday.

In his remarks, Mr. Mark urged the President and all the governors to observe the rule of law as they go about administering the country.
