Dr. Mariam Shetty, a candidate from Kano State, had her nomination withdrawn by the president, Bola Tinubu, on Friday.
Festus Keyamo, a former spokesman for the Bola Tinubu presidential campaign council, and a minister for the state under the Muhammadu Buhari administration was another candidate who made the latest ministerial list.
On Wednesday, President Bola Tinubu sent a second list of 19 candidates to the Senate for screening.
Reactions of Nigerians to President Bola Tinubu’s Wednesday nomination of Maryam Shetty from Kano State for a ministerial position on social media, notably Twitter, have been divided.
In addition to the 28 nominations that had already been received on August 2, Tinubu had forwarded an additional 19 names of ministerial candidates.
