Those not confirmed are Malam Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Stella Okotete (Delta) and Danladi Umar (Taraba).

  1. Some people are just against him because of Muslim muslim ticket in kaduna and nigeria. And that does not make him an extremist rather he only played politics. Screened or not his integrity is intact

    1. NO sharking. If it's because of what you mentioned above, I'm in total support of @ElRufai. He should not bother

    2. I'm happy with the Senate's decision.
      In a decent society, El-rufai should have been in jail long ago!
