The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Ambassador Gabriel Aduda, in Abuja, on Monday, said President Buhari had directed that a total of 95 ambassadors, including the 42 non-career ones whose nomination the Senate ratified in July 2020, be posted out.

The statement reads in part:

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to inform that His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, has approved the posting of ambassadors-designate to Nigerian Missions abroad.

“The list includes 43 career ambassadors and 52 non-career ambassadors.

“With this development, the process of requesting agreement from the prospective host countries have commenced.
