BREAKING: Senate confirms all 43 ministerial nominees

The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday has confirmed the 43 ministerial nominees presented by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari had last Tuesday presented the 43 ministerial nominees to the senate where it began its screening exercise on Wednesday, July 24,  that lasted five days. Buhari is expected to assign their portfolios during their inauguration into the Federal Executive Council.

Although returning ministers will not necessarily hold the same positions they held in the last four years, former information minister, Lai Mohammed, Saleh Mamman and Sabo Nanono were the last three to be screened. The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, thereafter announced the end of the screening process. He commenced the confirmation process by calling out the nominees and putting the questions to vote.

The Senate reverted to plenary to conclude the confirmation process – which the lawmakers unanimously agreed to.
