Senate confirms all 43 ministerial nominees

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

Muhari had last Tuesday presented the 43 ministerial nominees to the senate for ratification.

The upper legislative 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.

1.Uchechukwu Ogah (Abia)
