Senate Spokesperson, Yemi Adaramodu, has revealed that former Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai and other uncleared ministerial nominees may be re-invited for re-screening.
Adaramodu, who represents Ekiti South Senatorial District in the 10th National Assembly, stated this on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday.
When asked if the Red Chamber would still confirm ministerial nominees who are yet to be cleared, the lawmaker said, “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.”
The three ministerial nominees yet to be confirmed by the Senate are ex-Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, Senator Abubakar Danladi from Taraba State and ex-Nexim Bank Managing Director, Stella Okotete (Delta State).
Premium Politics reported that after a voice vote, the Senate on Monday accepted and confirmed the ministerial nominations of 45 additional Bola Tinubu appointees.
However, the senate withheld the ministerial confirmation of El-Rufai and two others pending “security clearance”.
