The ministerial nominees from Oyo and Yobe states, Mr Adebayo Shittu and Mrs Khadija Abba Ibrahim, have been screened by the Senate and asked to take a bow and leave.
Shittu took a bow and left after he had answered several questions from the senators, ranging from religion to politics, activism and governance.
Shittu addressed the perception that he was a religious extremist by stating that he has never been indicted by any panel of inquiry for religious intolerance as he is not a fanatic or a religious extremist.
He revealed that his secretary for many years is a Christian and wife of a Pastor with whom he has had a cordial working relationship.
Adebayo Shittu, who has served as a legislator, commissioner and Attorney-General in Oyo State, noted that his personality did not hamper his past political successes.
While affirming his commitment to seeing Nigerians live a moral life, he was of the view that religion should be made compulsory in educational institutions.
