The screening of the non-career ambassadorial nominees for whom President Buhari is seeking legislative approval.

The light went off at exactly 12:13 pm.

The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs was conducting the exercise for the 46 ambassadorial nominees.

The committee had to continue with the screening in darkness as power failed to return.
