Senate rejects Buhari's Ambassadorial nominees list, summons Foreign Affairs Minister


The Nigerian Senate on 22/06/2016 rejected the list of nominated Ambassadors sent by President Buhari on the ground that it has some irregularities that need to be clarified and has therefore summoned the Minister of Foreign Affairs for questioning.


Following reported discrepancies and the lack of state representational spread in the names of Ambassadorial nominees submitted to the Senate for consideration, today, the Senate resolved to summon the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to appear before it to explain the purported irregularities in the list.
It is important that we address the issues surrounding this list before the screening of Ambassadors commences.
In this regard, I have asked the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs to immediately investigate the alleged irregularities surrounding this nominee list and submit a report to the full plenary in one week.
