Ministerial List: Senate may re-invite El-Rufai, two other nominees – Adaramodu
Senate spokesperson, Yemi Adaramodu has said they might re-invite the three ministerial nominees who have not been confirmed yet for re-screening.
Adaramodu disclosed this while speaking on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.
The Red Chamber refused to confirm former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, Delta State nominee, Stella Okotete, and Taraba State nominee, Abubakar Danladi, over security reasons.
When asked whether the Senate would still confirm them, Adaramodu responded, “The question raised about them is an ongoing issue.
“So, once the Senate is satisfied, definitely, if we need to invite them to the chamber for the re-confirmation and re-screening, then we’ll do that.
“If security is not satisfied, the Senate cannot be satisfied. It depends on what security agencies and the person that nominates them say.”
On Monday, the Senate approved and confirmed 45 ministerial nominees of President Bola Tinubu after a voice vote.
However, the lawmakers withheld the ministerial confirmation of El-Rufai and two others pending “security clearance”.
