The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs on Tuesday in Abuja, screened 15 ambassadorial nominees out of 47 that were sent by President Muhammadu Buhari for confirmation.

The Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, led the nominees to the screening venue.

The Chairman of the committee, Sen. Monsurat Sunmonu, after the screening, announced that the committee would continue with the exercise on Wednesday.

The nominees answered questions ranging from their qualification to experience on the job.

However, some of the nominees failed to recite the National Anthem and Pledge when asked to do so.

The committee will after the screening, send report of the screening to the Senate at plenary for consideration and confirmation.

Buhari on Thursday July 9, sent a list of 47 ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for its consideration and confirmation.

The nomination was, however, trailed with controversies, as some people alleged that it was lopsided, as Bayelsa, Ebonyi, Plateau and Ondo senators kicked against the list. (NAN)
