Senate Confirms All 43 Ministerial Nominees

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of all the 43 ministerial nominees sent to the red chamber by President Muhammdu Buhari.

Buhari had last Tuesday sent a list of potential ministers to the Senate for screening.

The Senate postponed its annual vacation to conduct the screening of the ministers.

The nominees were screened within five days.

While the seven women on the list were simply asked to address the upper chamber, bow and go, their male counterparts answered questions thrown at them by the lawmakers, with the exception of former lawmakers, who were also asked to take a bow and go.
