Yemi Adaramodu, the Senate spokesperson, has said El-Rufai and two other ministerial nominees who have not been confirmed may be re-invited for re-screening.

Adaramodu disclosed this while featuring on Channels Television’s morning programme, Sunrise Daily.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly refused to confirm former governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, Delta State nominee, Stella Okotete and Taraba State nominee, Abubakar Danladi, following recommendation from security agencies.

Adaramodu was asked whether the Senate would still confirm them, heresponded: “The question raised about them is an ongoing issue.

“So, once the Senate is satisfied, definitely, if we need to invite them to the chamber for the re-confirmation and re-screening, then we’ll do that.

“If security is not satisfied, the Senate cannot be satisfied. It depends on what security agencies and the person that nominates them say.”

On Monday, the Senate led by the President, Godswill Akpabio, approved and confirmed 45 ministerial nominees out of 48 nominated byPresident Bola Tinubu after a voice vote.
