Breaking: Buhari Sends New List of Ambassadorial Nominee to Senate

President Muhammadu Buhari has resent ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for approval.
President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, read Buhari’s letter to the lawmakers during plenary on Thursday.
The letter was titled ‘Re-submission Of Non-career Ambassadorial Nominees’.
The Senate had rejected the first version of the list due to over 250 petitions against the nominees, two of whom rejected their nomination.
In the new list, while retired Justice George Oguntade (Lagos) and Ahmed Ibeto (Niger) maintained their nomination, several new names have emerged on the list.
The Senate had in November last year voted to reject the earlier list, asking for “re-submission and rejigging”.
Governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress were believed to have expressed opposition to the earlier list in their meeting with the President, complaining of non-consultation before nominees were drawn from their respective states.
