…. President Tinubu will review the list of ambassadors submitted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it has compiled and submitted the list of potential diplomats to the President for his review and consideration.

“We have collated everything on our part and forwarded it to Mr. President,” the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar said.

The President’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, emphasized the importance of a rigorous selection process before the final list of nominations is made public. He dismissed the circulating list as misinformation, stating that it is not authentic.

“There is no official list as of today. There is a list in circulation. That is fake news. The foreign affairs list will still go through certain processes before it is released.

“Don’t forget that the ambassadorial list has two components. There are career ambassadors and political ambassadors. So, whichever one they submitted, it will still go through a long process.”
