Once again, Nigerian Senate rejects Buhari’s list

President Muhammadu Buhari met with Senate President Bukola Saraki 3 times in one week.

Political observers believe the meeting was initiated at the instance of the president to reset their relationship.

As the president jetted off to Morocco for a Climate Change Conference, the Nigerian Senate threw out President Buhari’s list of all ambassadorial nominees.

The lawmakers said the list will be sent back to President Muhammadu Buhari “For resubmission and re-jigging.”

Notable nominees are retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice George Oguntade and former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Mrs. Paulen Tallen.
