New manes dominate Buhari’s ‘revised’ ambassadorial list to Senate

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a revised list of 46 non-career ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for legislative approval.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read President Buhari’s letter to the lawmakers during plenary, on Thursday.

The Senate had before now rejected the first version of the list due to over 250 petitions against the nominees, two of whom rejected their nomination.

In the new list, while retired Justice George Oguntade (Lagos) and Ahmed Ibeto (Niger) maintained their nomination, several new names have emerged on the list.
