Breaking: Senate Approves Buhari’s 43 ministerial nominees



Nigerian Senate on Tuesday confirmed all the 43 ministerial nominees presented to it for approval by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Buhari had last Tuesday presented the 43 ministerial nominees to the senate for ratification.


The Red Chamber began screening the nominees from last Wednesday after postponing its vacation to do a thorough job on the screening. It spent five days in screening all nominees.


Majority of those screened by the senate were asked to take a bow and go, an action that angered the public, calling the 9th Senate a rubber-stamp to the President Buhari.
Below is the list of ministerial nominees cleared by the Senate:
