The Senate has confirmed the appointment of immediate past Service Chiefs and another former top military brass as non-career ambassadors.
They are former Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Abayomi Olonisakin from Ekiti State; Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai (Borno); Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas (Cross River); Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar (Bauchi) and former Chief of Defence Intelligence, Sir Vice Marshal Muhammad Usman from Kano State, respectively.
Their confirmation followed the presentation and consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Defence, chaired by Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa (APC Bauchi North) during the plenary.
The objection raised against their confirmation by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinaya Abaribe, based on petitions by two different people, however, didn’t scale through as the Senate President, Dr Ahmad Lawan ruled him out of order and went ahead with the confirmation process.
