After much controversy on the constitutionality of the exercise, President Muhammadu Buhari has at last transmitted a letter to President of the Senate, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, seeking the screening and confirmation of the Service Chiefs – one week after they were named.

The transmission of the letter is despite the postponement of the National Assembly’s resumption date by one week.

The President had appointed Major General Abayomi Gabriel Olonishakin as Chief of Defence Staff; Major General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, Chief of Naval Staff; and Air Vice Marshal Monday Riku Morgan, Chief of Air Staff.

A source close to the office of the Senate President said the confirmation letter has been sent to the upper chamber, but attempts to get further clarification proved abortive.

However, the source gave an insight into the letter, seeking “confirmation of the following nominees for appointment as the Chief of Defence Staff and Service Chiefs for the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in accordance with Section 18(1) of the Armed Forces Act, Cap. A. 20 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004”.

The letter also noted: “The President may, upon consultation with the Chief of Defence Staff and subject to confirmation by the National Assembly, appoint such officers (in this Act referred to as ‘’Service Chiefs’’) as he thinks fit, in whom the command of the Army, Navy and Air Force, as the case may be, and their Reserves shall be vested.”

Published

on

There was pandemonium in the Jikwoyi axis of the Nyanya-Karshi road in Abuja, on Monday morning as security agents allegedly clashed with hoodlums who were said to have killed a policeman overnight in the area.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the operation led to a riot by the hoodlums while workers and commuters were on their way to the city centre.

The crisis was said to involve police officers and scavengers popularly known as “Mai bolas.” who set at least one car on fire.

The security operatives were said to have chased them to their hideouts around the area, which were later brought down.

While the crisis lasted, vehicular movement was blocked on both sides of the Nyanya-Karshi dual-carriage road as drivers turned around to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

A combined team of security forces was said to have successfully dislodged the hoodlums and arrested a number of them before order was restored in the area.
