Nigeria In One Minute

We’ll only confirm serious appointments by Buhari —Senate

The Senate has denied lifting, through the back door, the embargo it placed on confirmation of appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly said the appointments recently confirmed were considered to be serious enough to call for exceptions.

The Senate had in March 2017 resolved to suspend further consideration of appointments made by Buhari to protest against the retention of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, despite his rejection by the lawmakers.

Speaking to The PUNCH correspondent in an interview, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Aliyu Sabi-Abdullahi, denied that the lawmakers had lifted the embargo through the back door.
