FULL LIST of Ambassadors – Designate approved by Senate

The Nigerian Senate has confirmed 40 non-career and one career ambassadors-designate recently nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaker of the Nigerian Senate Ahmad Lawan advised the Federal Government to consider either closure or merger of some of its foreign missions if there is no resources to properly fund them.

He argued that there is no need to send an envoy to a foreign land to represent the country without making adequate provision for the ambassador’s upkeep or the sustainable administration of such an embassy.
