National Assembly confirms Sambo as Vice President
Muruf Akinlade, Liberty News, Abuja. Date & Time Filed on MyOndoState.Com: 2010-05-18 11:27:33
Without filibuster or obvious politicking, the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria today unanimously approved the nomination of Governor Namadi Sambo as the nation's Vice President.
The new Vice president until his appointment was the governor of Kaduna State, a Muslim from southern part of Kaduna who trained and practiced as an architect.
The Senateís plenary session lasted less than 12 minutes after the official correspondence from President Goodluck Jonathan on his nomination was read thereby officially notifying the Senators of the Presidentís nomination.
Namadi Sambo was not invited by either house of the National Assembly since there was no precedent requiring his presence.
The Federal House of Representatives held its session at the same time with that of the Senate. The representatives equally approved the nomination of Mr. president but with a level of rancor and agitations by the honourable members who were confused since there was no precedent stipulating an established and generally acceptable procedure.
Some honourable members requested that the approval process be put forward to another day but a majority of members agreed that Namadi Sambo's confirmation should not be delayed. When subjected to votes, majority approved his nomination as Vice President.
Following the assumption of presidential status by Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan after the death of Alh. Umaru Yar'Adua, the office of the Vice-President became vacant.
