The senate has confirmed the appointment of 45 non-career ambassadors nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari.

But the upper chamber of the national assembly rejected two of the nominees – Sylvanus Nsofor (Imo) and Jacob Daudu (Ondo).

The senate explained that they were not confirmed based on the recommendation of the foreign affairs committee.

The lawmakers had rejected the ambassadorial list in November, but the Buhari administration sent a revised list on January 12.

While voting on the confirmation of the nominees, Monsurat ‎Sunmonu, chairperson of the committee, explained that a report by the Department of State Services (DSS) indicted Daudu as “deceitful” and “corrupt.”

She also said ‎Nsofor did not perform well at the screening exercise.

Nsofor, a retried judge,  is 82 years old. He failed to recite the national anthem when he appeared before the lawmakers.

The confirmed nominees are:

  • Uzoma Eminike (Abia)
  • Aminu Lawal (Adamawa)
