The Senate, on Tuesday, November 15, rejected President Muhammadu Buhari’s list of non-career ambassadors.

The legislators also resolved to return the list to the president to enable him amend and resubmit it.

This was based on the recommendation of Senator Monsurat Sunmonu, the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

“I suggest we return the list of non-career ambassadors to the executive so that they can re-present it,” Sunmonu said.

“There about 200 petitions against the nominees, and we don’t even know where to start,” she added.
