President Muhammadu Buhari has forwarded the names of the newly appointed Service Chiefs to the Senate for consideration and approval.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Babajide Omoworare, said this in a statement.
The service chiefs were appointed on Tuesday.
Omoworare said the transmission of the names was done in line with Section 18 (1) of the Armed Forces Act Cap. A.20 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria.
He said that the information was contained in Buhari’s letter to the Senate President Ahmad Lawan dated 27th January 2021.
Buhari’s letter dispel reports that the President bypassed the National Assembly in the appointment of the Service Chiefs.
