The Senate on Thursday confirmed three new ambassadorial nominees forwarded to it by President Muhammadu Buhari earlier in the year.

Those confirmed are Mr. Christopher C. Chiejina from (Delta), Mr. Bukar Kolo, (Yobe) and Mr. M. A. Mabdul from Benue State.

The nominees were confirmed following the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Chairman of the committee, Senator Monsurat Sunmonu had earlier led members to screen the nominees.

While presenting the committee’s report to the Senate in session, Sunmonu said all the nominees met the criteria for the job.

Similarly, nominees for the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) were also confirmed by the upper legislative chamber.

Their confirmation followed the adoption of the report of the Senate Committee on National Planning and Economic Affairs.

Mr. Kabiru Nakaura was confirmed as chairman, representing the North West zone.

Members of the new board, as confirmed by the Senate, are Akinola Bashir (South West), Moses Momoh (South South), Wallijoh Ahijoh (North Central), Adam Modu (North East) and Nwafor Chukwudi (South East).

President Buhari had forwarded their nomination to the Senate in November 2018.
