Buhari Urges Senate To Confirm Ex Service Chiefs As Ambassadors

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Senate to confirm the new Service Chiefs as ambassadors.

He has also sought the consent of the upper legislative chamber for the appointment of the former Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin and erstwhile service chiefs as non-career Ambassadors.

The president’s appeal was contained in two separate letters sent to the Senate on Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, the Senate has resumed and held a plenary session for the first time in 2021.

While addressing lawmakers today, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan read the letter from President Muhamadu Buhari seeking the confirmation of the service chiefs.

He also read the letter from President Buhari seeking the confirmation of the immediate past service chiefs as non-career ambassadorial nominees.

However, the Senate adjourned plenary to honour a member of the House of Representatives, Ossy Prestige who died recently.
