Senate Confirms Appointment Of Service Chiefs

The Nigerian Senate has confirmed the appointment of the newly appointed Service Chiefs.

The Chief of Defence Staff, Major-General Leo Irabor, Chief of Air Staff Air Vice-Marshal Isiaka Oladayo Amao, Chief of Naval Staff Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo, and Chief of Army Staff General Ibrahim Attahiru were all cleared on Tuesday by the Red Chamber.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan urged the new service chiefs to take the insurgency war to the terrorists and bandits and dislodge them from their enclaves.

Their confirmation comes barely a week after the House of Representatives confirmed their appointment.

President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed the new service chiefs on January 26, following the sack of the former service chiefs.
