President Muhammadu Buhari, has on Sunday night, finally bowed to pressure, by conceding to withdraw the list of 46 non-career Ambassadorial nominees, recently submitted to the Upper Chamber for screening, and confirmation.
Recall, that 23 Governors elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had kicked against Buhari’s nominations.
Sources revealed on Sunday night, that the President has agreed to withdraw the list, because the Senate had made it clear to him, that his list was not acceptable to the Hallowed Chamber.
According to the source, the selection process used by Buhari, was in flagrant disregard to the Federal character principle, which provides that every State of the Federation must be equitably represented in such critical appointments.
“The president has agreed to withdraw the list, in order to work on it, and make it acceptable, because we have made it clear to him that there is nothing to be done, for the Senate to accept that kind of skewed list.
“At least this is non-career list, so the issue of some States not having qualified candidates does not arise. Unfortunately, the list he submitted to us, is in total contradiction of the nation’s constitution, particularly as it affects the provisions of Federal character.


“When you look at the list, you will find out that some States were completely left out, while some got two to three slots. What kind of thing is that? We cannot take it, and we have told him point blank, that it will be more dignifying for him to withdraw it, and correct all the anomalies spotted in the list.
“We cannot run this democracy like military dictatorship; neither are we going to allow any civilian, duly elected by the people of Nigeria, to operate an authoritarian regime under the watch of the people’s parliament.
“People may misunderstand us. They may even accuse us of antagonizing the President without a cause, but we won’t allow sentiments to detract us from doing what is right. It is we, the Lawmakers, that history and posterity will hold responsible for our actions or in-actions,” the source stated.
Recall, that Buhari had on October 20, forwarded the list of 46 non-career Ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for screening and confirmation, for appointment as Ambassadors.
Shortly after the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read the list on the floor of the Senate, Senator Philip Aduda, Federal Capital Territory, FCT, protested the non-inclusion of any nominee from the FCT on the list, describing the situation as unfair, and urged Buhari to revisit the matter, and correct the anomaly, in order to give the FCT a sense of belonging.
Days after, some other Senators drew the attention of the Senate to the fact that their States were not represented on the list, and urged that the omission be corrected, before the Chamber could screen and confirm the nominees.
