Senate Rejects 2 Non-Career Ambassadorial Nominees, Confirms 45 Others

The senate on Thursday rejected the nomination of two non-career ambassadorial nominees as it confirmed the appointment of 45 others nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari for legislative approval.

The rejected nominees are Justice Sylvanus Nsofor from Imo State and Mr Jacob Daodu from Ondo State.

The Upper Chamber explained that the decision to reject the affected nominees followed the report presented by Monsurat Sunmonu, APC-Oyo, chairperson of the committee on foreign affairs, which had screened the 47 nominees.

It is understood that Mr. Nsofor, during his screening, refused to recite the national anthem as he also questioned the Senators’ reason for asking him for the recital.

While Mr. Daodu, it was gathered, was dropped because of a negative report from the State Security Service that indicted for corruption.
