“So far, we have treated about 240 confirmations here in the Senate, of which, 227 have been affirmative and only 13 have been negative.

“Sometime, we get the impression that this Senate tends to say more ‘No’ than ‘Yes’ but these numbers today show the level of cooperation that we will continue to give the executive,” Mr Saraki added.
