The Nigerian Senate on Thursday rejected a commissioner-nominee for the National Population Commission (NPC).

Dr. Abdul Malik Mohammed Durnnguwa was the only one out of the 23 nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari who was not cleared. The Senate explained that Durnnguwa’s West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate was questionable.

According to Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, “Dr. Abdul Malik Mohammed Durnnguwa’s nomination was stood down due to questionable certificates.” In his contribution, Senator Ali Ndume, said: “When you have questionable certifications, it is the duty of the Committee to verify.”

On his part, Senator Gumel Abdullahi noted that, “My concern is whether he took WAEC and passed.” Durnnguwa’s nomination was referred back to the committee on National Population for further action.
