Confirmation of non-career ambassadors: Senate is a department of Aso Rock, Presidency – Dino Melaye

 


The former Senator representing the Kogi West Senatorial district, Senator Dino Melaye has slammed the Nigerian Senate for confirming the former service chiefs as non-career ambassadors-designate.

In a tweet on his official Twitter page on Wednesday, SDM alleged that the senate was working for the presidency.

“Confirmation of service chief: Shame on the Senate who just confirmed that the Nigerian Senate is a department of Aso Rock and the Presidency.

“Confirming those you recommended for sack more than once for gross incompetence as Ambassadors is a SHAME. SDM”, Dino Melaye tweeted.

Recall that the Senate on Tuesday, confirmed the appointment of the nation’s immediate former Service Chiefs as non-career ambassadors-designate.

The confirmation of the nominees followed consideration of the report of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

The former Service Chiefs confirmed are: General Abayomi G. Olonisakin (Rtd), Ekiti; Lt. General Tukur Y. Buratai (Rtd), Borno; Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete E. Ibas (Rtd), Cross River; and Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar (Rtd), Bauchi.
