The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the nomination of Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu as an Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
This followed the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs which recommended her confirmation.
Chairman of the Committee, Senator Matthew Nwagwu (Imo North) presented the report of the committee entitled: “That the Senate do consider the report of the committee on Foreign Affairs on the screening of Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu for appointment as an Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and approve the recommendation therein” at a plenary in Abuja.
Mrs. Ojukwu was not able to attend the screening of 85 ambassadorial nominees due to the death of her husband.
Although it was not stated, information available to our correspondents has it that Mrs. Ojukwu might be made special ambassador attached to the Office of the President.
