President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, requested the approval of the Senate for the confirmation of 42 ambassadorial nominees.
Only one of the nominees from the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was appointed as career ambassador, while the rest are non-career nominees.
Some of the non-career nominees are former minister, Ademola Seriki (Lagos); Debo Adesina (Oyo), and Dare Sunday-Awoniyi (Kogi), among others.
President Buhari, in another letter, asked the upper chamber to confirm the appointment of three nominees as commissioners in the Federal Civil Service Commission.
He also sought the approval of the Senate for the appointment of a federal commissioner for the Revenue Mobilisation and Fiscal Commission.
