Namdas said, yesterday, in Abuja that the Senate had treated many nominees from the Presidency fairly, adding that they were guided by their wisdom.

According to him, if in the wisdom of the Senate it discovers that this is the best decision they can arrive at, there is nothing wrong in that.

He said: “This Senate I know has cleared a lot of presidential nominees, whether ministers or for statutory appointments; they have done many screenings. If out of a dozen they chose to make reservation on certain individuals, I think Nigerians should listen to them.

“I can assure Nigerians that the legislature and the executive will continue to work together for the good of this country.”

On whether Magu could be re-nominated, Namdas said that it was possible as no law stopped the President from re-nominating anyone three to four times.
