Senate Confirms 43 Ministerial Nominees

BY OBUTE JAMES

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday confirmed all the ministerial nominees forwarded to it last week.

The Senate had earlier screened the nominees one after the other since last Wednesday 24 July, 2019.

Though Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan had penultimate Thursday said any nominee that failed to submit his/her certificate of asset declaration will not be confirmed. THE LEGISLATURE cannot immediately confirm if the ministerial nominees were able to submit their certificate of asset declaration before they were confirmed as there was no point order raised in respect of it.

The confirmation was first done through voice vote at the committee of the whole chaired by Lawan.
