Tinubu’s Ministerial Nominee Slumps During Screening

 

In a dramatic turn of events at the Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, Balarabe Abbas Lawal, a ministerial nominee hailing from Kaduna State, collapsed during his screening, sending shockwaves through the chamber and prompting swift action from lawmakers.

 

Lawal, among the three new ministerial nominees under scrutiny, had been responding to questions from the Senate as part of the rigorous ministerial screening process.

The other nominees facing scrutiny alongside him were Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim from Kwara State and Mr. Ayodele Olawande from Ondo State.

Senate Leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, had earlier moved a motion to extend the sitting time beyond the usual 2 pm cutoff to ensure all items on the day’s agenda were addressed. Lawal was the second nominee to be screened that day, following this extension.

 

Following Lawal’s collapse, the Senate swiftly went into a closed-door session to deliberate on the situation and determine the appropriate course of action. The nominee remained inside the chamber as efforts were made to revive him.

 

The incident has raised concerns about the rigorous nature of the ministerial screening process in Nigeria and the need to ensure the well-being of nominees. As the Senate deliberates on the situation, all eyes are on Balarabe Abbas Lawal’s condition and the Senate’s next steps in the ministerial screening process.
