Niger House of Assembly on Thursday confirmed 14 nominees for commissioners.
The lawmakers, however, rejected the nomination of the immediate past Commissioner for Agriculture, Kabiru Musa.
Three other nominees, George Koche, Danjuma Sallau and Isah Kanko were not screened due to pending cases of petitions against them to be resolved by the House Committee on Public Petitions.
The Speaker, Alhaji Ahmed Marafa, said that the affected nominees would be screened after the Legislators returned from break in 2018.
Those confirmed include Zakari Bawa, Dr. Mustapha Jibril, Hajiya Ramatu Yar’adua, Zakari Jikantoro, Zakari Abubakar, Amina Musa, Ibrahim Balarabe, Idris Amin, Mamman Musa, Nasara Danmallam, Ibrahim Panti, Mohammed Adamu, Ismaila Ibrahim and Fatima Magudu.
