Senate confirms three new ambassadorial nominees
The Senate on Thursday confirmed three new ambassadorial nominees recommended to it by President Muhammadu Buhari early this year.
The confirmation followed the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs chaired by Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, which had earlier screened the nominees.
The nominees who were confirmed are: Mr. Christopher C. Chejina from Delta State; Mr. Bukar Kolo, Yobe State; and Mr. M. A. Mabdul from Benue State, respectively.
Presenting the committee’s report, Senator Sunmonu said all the nominees met the criteria to be representatives of the country abroad and therefore recommended their confirmation by the upper legislative chamber. Punch
