Senate confirms 18 ministerial nominees, Amaechi to wait


The Nigeria Senate, Wednesday, confirmed 18 ministerial nominees while the Former Governor of Rivers State Rotimi Amaechi was asked to wait till tomorrow, ITRealms reports authoritatively.

Confirming the already screened nominees, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read the names of all nominees for confirmation and the House consented to all 18 nominees that were screened. They include Babatunde Fashola (Lagos), Dr. Ibe Kachikwu (Delta state), Abubakar Malami (Kebbi state), Chris Ngige (Anambra state), Aisha Jummai Alhassan (Taraba state), Solomon Dalong (Plateau state), Kemi Adeosun (Ogun state), Hadi Sirika (Katsina state).

Others are: Udoma Udo Udoma (Akwa Ibom state), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti state), Audu Ogbeh (Bayelsa state), Ogbonnaya Onu (Ebonyi state), Osagie Ehanire (Edo state), Abdulrahman Dambazau (Kano state), Lai Mohammed (Kwara state), Amina J Mohammed (Gombe state), Suleiman Adamu (Jigawa state) and Ibrahim Jibril (Nasarawa state).

Meanwhile Rotimi Amaechi will wait till Thursday following inability of Senate committee on petition and privileges to submit finding on Amaechi, ITRealms gathered.  

In another development, President Muhammadu Buhari withdrew the name of immediate past Deputy Governor of Niger State, Ahmed Musa Ibeto from the list of ministerial nominees sent to the Senate. He was immediately replaced with Abubakar Bawa.
