Abbas Balarabe, a Kaduna State ministerial nominee, collapsed during his screening before the Senate house this afternoon, freshreporters media had gathered.
Balarabe had just finished his presentation to the lawmakers and fainted while one of the Kaduna senators was praising him.
Following his collapse, the Senate President, GodsWill Akpabio, started to scream, “Bring water and sugar. Call Dr Musa.”
Akpabio, who’s the senate president then immediately called for a closed-door session.
Balarabe was nominated as a replacement for the former Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
His name was contained in a letter read by the senate president at the plenary on Tuesday, 3rd of October, 2023.
Balarabe’s name was read alongside Dr Jamila Ibrahaim and Ayodele Olawande as Minister of Youths and Minister of State for Youths respectively who were earlier nominated by the President.
Balarabe, a former Secretary to the Kaduna State government, was in April appointed to lead a 65-man transition committee ahead of the swearing-in of Uba Sani.
The Senate had in August refused to confirm the nomination of El-Rufai alongside former Nexim bank Managing Director, Stella Okotete (Delta State), and Abubakar Danlandi, a nominee from Taraba State.
