The Senate this afternoon rejected the ambassadorial list sent to it by the President, Muhammadu BUHARI. The rejection, according the our reporter who covers the Senate was because the Senators believed that the list did not reflect federal character.

Apart from the fact that Bayelsa complained that it did not have a nominee in the list, Ondo state also did not have. The Senate grouse might also have been as a result of the ongoing face-off between the Upper House and the Executive over the forgery of rules that has seen both the Senate President and his deputy dragged before a court forgery.
