Abuja - August 09 (Mediaage NG News) – Spokesperson of the Nigerian Senate Yemi Adaramodu yesterday said the three yet to be confirmed ministerial nominees could be reinvited if the Senate sees a need for it.


Immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, Senator Abubakar Danladi from Taraba State, and ex-Nexim Bank Managing Director, Stella Okotete (Delta State) failed to scale through the screening process of the senate, having failed to get a security clearance.
