All states to get ambassadorial slots – SGF
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal, yesterday said each state would get at least one ambassadorial nominee.
Speaking when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs alongside the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, he said the government would send the second batch of ambassadorial nominees to capture states that were not represented in the first list.
In his contribution, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, said the issue of non representation of some states would be taken care in the next list. He said there was no secret agenda on the selection, adding that the nominees were selected based on experience, records of service and capacity.
