senate_president__david_mark 600It was an intriguing session as the Senate confirmed the nomination of Abdul jelil Adesina, General Aliyu Gusau and Asabe Ahmed and Musiliu Obanikoro among others as ministers today.
After the appearance of Asabe Ahmed from Niger state, the Senate President David Mark began the final confirmation processes. This was however briefly interrupted by a senator from Osun .
The Senator recalled that he had drawn the attention of the senate president to that fact that all the three senators from Osun have were opposed to the nomination of Adesina as minister.He also recalled that Adesina had explained that he did not killed late Bola Ige as alleged.But as the senator was later stopped in his tracks and ruled out of order by the senate president .
The senate then proceeded to confirm all the nominees sent by president Jonathan.
A unique feature that political watchers need to note here is that in spite of the opposition by all the senators from Osun State, the Nigerian senate has confirmed Adesina.
It brings to mind the fact that President Olusegun Obasanjo was voted into office as president in 1999 in spite of his ‘rejection’ by South West leaders.
