The Nigerian Senate announced the confirmation of 18 ministerial nominees.
The confirmation of their appointment comes after a screening on the floor of the house.
A Senator representing Lagos East senatorial district and a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gbenga Ashafa has sent a goodwill message to the 18 ministers whose appointments have been confirmed.
He called on the nominees to seize the opportunity to make the country proud.
“While I recognise that the task before them is both herculean and complex, I am confident in their ability to succeed and set Nigeria on the path of greatness. With our fearless and visionary leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, at the fore of this team, ably supported by the erudite Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, I am more than assured that this new government will deliver on its promises and make our economy competitive and productive.” Senator Ashafa said in a statement.
