The Nigerian upper chamber has confirmed the appointment of 45 non-career ambassadors.

President Muhammadu Buhari sent the list of nominees to the Senate in 2016, but it was rejected.

Following the rejection, the President sent a revised list on January 12 2017.

The confirmation took place during Thursday’s plenary session, with the house rejecting two of the nominees.

The lawmakers refused to confirm Sylvanus Nsofor (Imo) and Jacob Daudu (Ondo), two of the nominees.

Nsofor was rejected for refusing to recite the country’s National Anthem, while Daudu was rejected based on negative report from the State Security Service that indicted him for corruption.
