The Senate on Monday finally concluded the screening of 45 of the 48 ministerial
nominees of President Bola Tinubu, confirming them as CABINET MEMBERS after a week
of intense grilling for some and cursory introductions for others.
Senate President Godswill Akpabio had put the nominations to a series of voice votes, of
which three are said to still be undergoing security clearance, including former Governor of
Kaduna State Nasir El-Rufai, Stella Okotete (Delta State), and Abubakar Danladi
The confirmation comes over a week after Tinubu’s transmission of a 28-member list to the
red chamber for confirmation on July 27.
