President Bola Tinubu has sent three more ministerial nominees to the Senate for screening and confirmation.
Senate President Godswill Akpabio read a letter from President Tinubu requesting the confirmation of three additional ministerial nominees when the lawmakers resumed plenary session on Tuesday.
The nominees are Balarabe Abbas Lawal from Kaduna State, Dr Jamila Bio Ibrahim from Kwara State, and Mr Ayodele Olawande from Ondo State.
The Senate in August 2023 screened and confirmed 45 ministerial nominees and rejected three of them. Notable among those not confirmed include former Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai.
The two other nominees rejected then were Stella Okotete from Delta State and Abubakar Danladi from Taraba State.
