The lawmakers however, withheld the confirmation of Abdulmalik Durnguwa (Kaduna), a top chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was the coordinator of the Nasir El-rufai Governorship Campaign in Kachia Local Government Area of the state in the last general elections.

The Senate resolved to stand down Durnguwa’s confirmation after the Chairman of the Senate Committee on National Identity Card and National Polulation Commision, Suleiman Hunkuyi (PDP, Kaduna North) complained that the committee found “discrepancies in the nominee’s credentials.”

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, thereafter, directed the committee to carry out further investigations on the nominee and report back in four weeks.
