Finally, Buhari approves posting of envoys, six months after Senate confirmation



President Muhammadu Buhari has finally approved the postings of ambassador-designates to Nigerian Missions abroad.

The Nigerian Senate had six months ago confirmed nomination of the envoys. While 43 of them are career ambassadors, 52 are non-career ambassadors.

However, in a statement on Tuesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Permanent Secretary, Amb. Gabriel Aduda, announced that the positing of the envoys has received the president’s approval.
