The Senate on Wednesday completed the screening process and confirmed all the 43 ministerial nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The president had on Monday, last week, sent the list to the Senate for screening and confirmation. The upper chamber duly suspended its recess for the exercise.
The lawmakers spent five days screening all the nominees. And of the 43 nominees screened, 22 were given the “take a bow and go” treatment. This was done based on legislative background, gender, as well as loyalty.
