Senate rejects Buhari’s nominees for NNDC board

The Nigerian Senate has rejected some nominees on Buhari’s list for the Niger Delta Development Commission Board.

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed the nominations of 16 members of the Niger Delta Development Commission Board, but rejected the nominations of Mr. Olatokunbo Ajasin, son of the former governor of old Ondo State, late Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin, as a representative of the state on the board and that of the Abia State, Mr. Donatus Enyinnah.

Both Ajasin and Enyinnah were rejected on the ground that their nominations breached the NDDC Act, as they are not from oil-producing areas of their respective states
