President Muhammadu Buhari has sent the names of two new ministerial nominees to the Senate for confirmation.
A source close to the Senate told our correspondent that the letter arrived the Senate late on Tuesday.
The source revealed that the two nominees are from Kogi and Gombe States.
Our correspondent gathered that the Kogi State nominee will be replacing the late Minister of State for Labour, James Ocholi, while the nominee from Gombe State would be replacing former Minister for the Environment, Amina Mohammed, who had gone to serve in the United Nations as a Deputy Secretary General.
The list of ministerial nominees is coming at a time when the Senate stood down for two weeks the consideration of the request of President Buhari for the appointment of Resident Electoral Commissioners for the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The Senate based its decision on what it termed disregard for its proceedings.
The upper legislative chamber specifically berated the President for appearing to be doing nothing about the rejection of Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, but allowing him to function in acting capacity.
The Senate stressed that it was wrong to leave any appointee in acting capacity even after he had been rejected twice by the Senate, especially when the President or his Vice is in office.
