The upper arm of the Nigerian legislative chambers, the Senate has approved the request of President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint 15 special advisers.
It would be recalled that President Buhari sent in the request on Tuesday, through a letter to the senate. In the letter read before the senate, Buhari asked the senators to approve his request for the appointment of 15 special advisers.
Acting on that, the senate gave its approval on Wednesday. The president had earlier appointed Femi Adesina, as his special adviser on media and publicity and Garba Shehu, as his senior special assistant on media and publicity. It is not certain if the number of special advisers of the president will increase, but Goodluck Jonathan, his predecessor, appointed at least 24 special advisers.
Meanwhile, David Mark, senate president, who presided over the session, disclosed that th?e senate would deliberate on the 2015 constitution amendment bill on Thursday when the 7th assembly is expected to wrap it’s legislative tenure.
