The Nigerian Senate, on Wednesday, confirmed the Corps Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Mr Osita Chidoka and a lecturer at the University of Abuja, Dr Abubakar Suleiman as ministers.

President Goodluck Jonathan had forwarded the names of the two nominees last week to the Senate for confirmation.

Federal lawmakers grilled the two nominees with questions on aviation, education and security.

The lawmakers also sought Suleiman’s views on the problem of incessant strikes by university lecturers.

After the screening, the Senate confirmed both Chidoka and Suleiman as ministers.

Ministerial screenings have dominated legislative proceedings in the Senate for the past two weeks.

Last week, the Senate screened and confirmed former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekerau and three others.

Few days after the screening, Shekerau was named the Minister of Education.
