“I am assuming that I will be representing Gombe state because I am not from Kaduna state. My father is from Gombe state and I was born in Gombe state. I was only educated in Kaduna state,” Mohammed told the committee.

Buhari submitted a list of 21 nominees on September 30, 2015, and is expected to submit the rest this week.
