SENATE CONFIRMS NEW AMBASSADORIAL NOMINEES
By Babajide Labinjo
The Senate on Thursday confirmed three new ambassadorial nominees forwarded to it by President Muhammadu Buhari early this year.
The confirmed Ambassadors are: Mr. M. A. Mabdul from Benue State; Mr. Christopher C. Chejina from Delta State, and Mr. Bukar Kolo, Yobe State respectively.
The confirmation followed the recommendation of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs committee chaired by Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, which had earlier screened the nominees.
Senator Sunmonu while presenting the committee’s report said the nominees met the criteria to be ambassadors of the country abroad and therefore recommended their confirmation by the upper legislative chamber.
