President MUHAMMADU BUHARI is set to send a “reworked” list of non-career ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for confirmation.
The Senate had last week rejected the 46 non-career ambassadorial nominees earlier sent to it by BUHARI for approval.
The lawmakers, who said the list would be returned to the President for re-jigging and re-submission, added that they rejected the nominees because of over 250 petitions against them.
Now a fresh list is being anticipated to be sent to the senate.
The fresh list would have the contribution of state governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress who complained that they did not have input into the selection of those who featured on the rejected list.
However, some of the 46 names might still make the new list to be sent for approval if nothing serious was found against them.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, FEMI ADESINA, confirmed that the list of the ambassadorial nominees would be worked on and sent to the Senate soon.
ADESINA was however not specific on when the list would be ready for transmission to the Senate.
