The Senate at a plenary today confirmed the appointment of former service chiefs as non career ambassadors
The confirmation followed the consideration of the report of the senate committee on foreign Affairs laid by Senator Mohammed Bulkachuwa
Senate President Ahmad Lawan had on February 10th mandated the committee on foreign affairs to confirm General Abayaomi Olonisakin Ekiti General Tukr Burutai Borno Vice Admiral Ibok-Ette Ibas , Cross Rivers, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, Bauchi and Air Vice Marshal Muhammad Usman, Kapo as non Career Ambassadors of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Soon after the report was laid the Minority Leader Senator Enyinaya Abaribe, raised a point of order and drew the attention of his colleagues to a petition against their confirmation
Abaribe had asked Bulkachuwa to explain why the petition against them was dismissed but the Senate President Lawan dismissed his position saying that the petition lacked merit
