Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, on Monday, explained that the red chamber withheld the ministerial confirmation of three nominees because the upper legislative arm was “still awaiting security clearance”.

The Senate, however, approved and confirmed the ministerial nominations of 45 other appointees of President Bola Tinubu after a voice vote.

The Senate President said, “Just to mention that for the avoidance of doubt, the Senate has so far approved and confirmed the nomination of 45 ministers out of the total 48 ministerial nominees sent to us by the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Force of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The others are still awaiting security clearance.”
