Merry-Go-Round: Senate Continues Ministerial Nominees’ Screening

The screening of Nigerian ministerial nominees has resumed on Tuesday at the Senate Chambers after the lawmakers adjourned sitting last Thursday.

Six nominees, who were scheduled to face the lawmakers’ scrutiny are: Professor Adewale Folorunso, Bawa Bwari, Geoffrey Onyeama, Zainab Ahmed, Mohammed Dan Ali and Usani Uguru
Professor Adewale Folorunsho, Honourable Bawa Bwari and Mr Geoffrey Onyeama have appeared before the Senate and taken their leave.
The fourth nominee, Zainab Ahmed also appeared before the Senate while Mansur Dan Ali and Usani Uguru were awaiting their turn.
President Muhammadu Buhari had sent 36 names to the upper chamber of the Senate to be screened as members of his cabinet.
The exercise had gone in phases with the first batch of the nominees already confirmed by the Senate.
After Tuesday’s nominees are screened, about four more may be left, which means before the end of the week, the senate might be able to confirm the nominees.
