In his address, Senator Enang, who described the screening exercise as the most thorough he had witnessed during his time in the National Assembly, also commended the Senator Monsurat Sunmonu-led committee for its show of dedication and commitment.
?He said: “Let me use this opportunity to commend the Senate committee for the way and manner in which the screening exercise was carried out. I must say it is the most thorough and intellectual I’ve seen in my time here.

?”Also, the committee has demonstrated by its decision to screen the nominees despite the Senate being on recess that it is committed and dedicated to service of our dear nation,” Enang added.

The Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, in his response, advised the nominees to represent the country positively in their respective postings adding that they have made history by going through the screening exercise.

“We appeal to you to please make us proud, though there are challenges, I urge you to look at things differently in your service to the nation. ?As you know, it is in the interest of our country to have ambassadors all over, as the absence will slow down bilateral relations?. I wish you all the best,” the Senate President said.
