The Nigerian Senate has confirmed eleven out of 12 nominees forwarded to the legislature by President Goodluck Jonathan as ministers.

The  ministers are Musiliu Obanikoro, Mohammed Wakil, Ambassador Aminu Wali, Mrs Akon Eyakenyi, Mrs Lawrencia Mallam, General Aliu Gusau Mohammed (Rtd), Mr Boni Haruna, as well as Dr Khaliru Alhassan, Alhaji Abduljelili Adesiyan, Asabe Ahmed and Dr Tammy Danagogo.

The screening of the 12th nominee, Hadjia Jamilla Salik from Kano State, was deferred.

However, there was stiff opposition from lawmakers from Osun State over the confirmation of Abduljelili Adesiyan.

A lawmaker from Osun State, Senator Olusola Adeyeye, said that all three lawmakers from Osun State unanimously rejected the nominee on the basis of a credibility crisis, having been once accused of involvement in the murder of the former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige.

Mr Adesiyan, had told the Senate during screening that he had been wrongfully accused of having a hand in the murder of late Bola Ige, who was assassinated in his Bodija home, in Ibadan, Oyo State on December 23, 2001.
