Aisha Abubakar who hails from Sokoto state is among the last set of ministerial nominees appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari to be screened today.

Other nominees to be screened are Okechukwu Eyinna Enelamah, Anwuka Anthony Gozie,Muhammed Musa Bello and Adamu Adamu.

Since the screening, 31 nominees have been screened so far.

Recall that the Sokoto state chapter of the All Progressives Congress recently sent an official letter demanding that Buhari erases Abubakar’s name from the list of the ministerial nominees on the grounds she is not a party member. The APC leaders in Sokoto state insisted that her nomination violates the constitution of Nigeria as well as the conventions of the ruling party.
