The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the nomination of 39 non-career and one career ambassadors for Nigeria.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on July 1, 2020 in a letter requested the upper chamber to confirm the appointment of 41 non-career ambassadors-designate.

The confirmation of the nominees was sequel to the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs during plenary.

The Senate, however, confirmed 39 non-career ambassadors and stood down the confirmation of the nominees from Niger and Yobe states to resolve what the committee described as a “mixup”.
