The nominee, who fell to the floor after speaking for about 15 minutes was resuscitated by medical personnel called into the chamber after he slumped.

A source in the Senate disclosed that the nominee was suffering from exhaustion.

The Senate had gone into a closed-door session while efforts were being made to revive him inside the chamber.

The ministerial nominee has been taken out of the senate chamber with an ambulance.

The screening has resumed with the third nominee, Ayodele Olawande, from Ondo State now before the senate.

Lawal is one of the three new ministerial nominees being screened by the Senate, with others being Dr Jamila Bio Ibrahim from Kwara State and Mr Ayodele Olawande from Ondo State.

He was the second nominee to be screened after the Senate Leader, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, moved a motion to extend the sitting time beyond 2 p.m. to conclude all the items for the day.

While speaking, the nominee said he has been serving in government for a long time and intends to bring his experience to the cabinet of the President Bola Tinubu administration.
