Buhari writes National Assembly to confirm Service Chiefs already in office

Buhari writes National Assembly to confirm Service Chiefs already in office (Updated: Friday 29th January 2021, 05:36 PM)


President Muhammadu Buhari has communicated the appointment of the Service Chiefs to the National Assembly for confirmation.

His aide on National Matters (Senate), Babajide Omoworare, made this known in a statement on Friday.

The former Senator said the letter, addressed to the President of the Senate, was dated January 27.

Nigerians are accusing Buhari of bypassing the legislature in the appointment of the Service Chiefs.

But Omoworare explained that the President did not disregard the federal lawmakers.

He insisted that Buhari sought the endorsement of Maj- Gen. Lucky Irabor, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, Rear Admr Awwal Gambo and AVM Isiaka Amao as Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff and Chief of Air Staff respectively.

“It is on record that this same procedure was adopted when the immediate past service chiefs were appointed,” the SA added.

But the reverse should be the case. The National Assembly should have first grilled the Service Chiefs before assuming office.

In the last 24 hours, the military heads have taken their seats at their respective headquarters.

Last Friday, the United States Senate confirmed President Joe Biden’s Defense Secretary nominee, retired Gen. Lloyd Austin, before he resumed.

Three days earlier, the Senate Committee on Armed Forces interviewed the new Pentagon chief.
