The Senate President Senator Godswill Akpabio has received a letter from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu seeking the confirmation of the Red Chamber for his appointment of new service Chiefs.
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has asked the Senate to confirm the appointment of new service chiefs.
The Letter which was addressed to Senate President was read during Tuesday’s plenary.
Tinubu said the confirmation request was in line with the Act establishing the Armed Forces.
ALL FACTS NEWSPAPER recalls that President Tinubu had, last month, appointed Christopher Musa, a major general, as the new chief of defense staff (CDS) and Taoreed Lagbaja, a major general, as chief of army staff.
Tinubu also appointed Emmanuel Ogalla, a rear admiral, as chief of naval staff and Hassan Abubakar, an Air vice marshal, as the chief of air staff, while Emmanuel Undiandeye, a major general, was appointed chief of defence intelligence.
He urged the Red Chamber to consider his request expeditiously.
Akpabio, after reading the letter, referred the request to the Committee of the Whole in absence of Standing Committee on Armed Forces.
This comes as the Senate awaits submission of the president’s list of ministerial nominees.
