President Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, communicated his nomination of three additional ministerial nominees to the Senate seeking their confirmation as Ministers.

Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, disclosed this while reading the President’s letter at plenary on Tuesday.

The three nominees include Dr. Jamila Bio from Kwara State and Olawale Olawande from Lagos State, who have been nominated to man the Youth Ministry.

The third nominee, Balarabe Abbas, is to replace the immediate-past governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, whose confirmation was withheld by the Senate over a pending security clearance.

Upon his confirmation by the Senate and barring last-minute change, Abbas will be deployed to the Ministry of Environment, which was already reserved for Kaduna State.
