The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday requested President Muhammadu Buhari to post the ex-service chiefs who have been confirmed as non-career ambassadors to insurgency prone neighboring countries where their experiences can be best utilized.
Senate President Ahmed Lawan said this as the senate confirmed the nomination of the Ex-service chiefs as non-career ambassadors.
The Senate’s action followed the presentation of the report by the senate committee on foreign affairs asking the senate to confirm the nominees after their screening.
Deputy minority leader, Eyinayan Abaribe was the lone voice who questioned the capabilities of the nominees.
Abaribe brought the attention of the senate to a petition against the nominees in the Senate’s past resolutions as service chiefs.
Senate Ahmad Lawan however said Abaribe’s observation is null and void as the nominees are being nominated for a different office.
