President Muhammadu Buhari has sent the names of non-career ambassadors to the Senate for clearance and confirmation as ambassadors.

Forty-six persons made the list.

Among them are a former Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly and former Senator, Olorunnimbe Mamora; Musa Ibeto; and former Minister and former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Pauline Tallen.
