The Senate has confirmed the nomination of the immediate past service chiefs as non-career ambassadors.
The Senate Minority Leader Enyinaya Abaribe, on Tuesday, questioned the nomination and confirmation of the ex-service chiefs when the Senate had on three different occasions called for their sack.
Senator Abaribe also questioned why the petitions against the former service chiefs were dismissed without explanations.
But Senate President Ahmad Lawan dismissed Senator Abaribe’s concerns, ruling that the nomination of the former service chiefs cannot be nullified simply because the upper chamber had called for their sack, noting that this is totally a different assignment.
The Senate President promptly stopped any further debate on the matter.
In his concluding statement, Senator Lawan added that the former service chiefs have served the country to the best of their abilities.
He urged the Executive to utilise their experiences as much as possible and they should be posted to countries where they will be useful.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on February 4, nominated the immediate past service chiefs of the nation as ambassadors.
