Mr Abbas Balarabe, who was recently confirmed minister, claims that he slumped during the Senate’s screening exercise because of weariness.

The minister-designate told reporters that he learned of his nomination on Tuesday and had spent the entire night preparing for his “big day.”

Balaraba said, “It is basically exhaustion. I got the news of my nomination yesterday and I had to come from Kaduna.

“There were so many things to do which I attended to throughout the night.

“What happened today is as a result of pure exhaustion.

“I want to thank the Senate for their understanding, particularly the senators from my state (Kaduna), who have all gathered around me since yesterday, and the medical team who took care of me.

“I am alright now; nothing is wrong with me. What I experienced was pure exhaustion, which can happen to anybody.”
