APC did not follow the order for appointing career ambassadors based on seniority-Sen Emmanuel Bwacha

Following criticisms that have continued to trail the ambassadorial nominees sent by President Muhammadu Buhari for screening and confirmation, the Senate yesterday vowed not to commence screening until the Presidency corrected the anomalies associated with the nomination.
Against this backdrop, the Senate summoned the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, David Babachir Lawal, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama, to appear before the Senator Monsurat Sunmonu’s Committee on Foreign Affairs today at 11am to explain the manner the list was drawn and what led to the omission of some states from the list sent by the President. States as Bayelsa, Ebonyi and Ondo have complained about their omission from the ambassadorial list sent last week by the President. The Senate has, however, given the committee one week to carry out the assignment and submit its report.
