The Nigerian senate has cleared the former Nigeria’s ambassador to Ghana, Musiliu Obanikoro, ex-national security adviser, General Aliyu Gusau and four other ministerial nominees.
Also cleared were the former House of Representatives majority leader, Hon. Mohammed Wakil, Ambassador Aminu Wali, Akon Etim Eyakenyi and Lawrencia Labaran Mallam.
Obanikoro, a former PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State was the first nominee to be screened.
He read out his curriculum vitae, saying he had served as local government chairman, commissioner, Senator and Nigeria’s Ambassador to Ghana.
In line with the Senate tradition of clearing any former senator with no question asked, Obanikoro was simply asked to take a bow.
Gusau was also asked to take a bow after the Senate President, David Mark, introduced him as a graduate of the inaugural class of the Nigerian Defence Academy.
The senate was also soft on other nominees except former Ambassador to China, Aminu Wali, who was drilled severally before he was eventually cleared.
