Reps May Confirm New Service Chiefs Tuesday

There are strong indications that the House of Representatives will on Tuesday confirm appointments of the new service chiefs nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The ad hoc committee set up by the House to screen the nominees would lay its report on Tuesday.

Incidentally, the House now holds plenary just once every week due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the House screened the nominees on Wednesday, the Senate had separately screened them on Thursday.

They are Maj. Gen. Lucky Eluonye Onyenuchea lrabor – Chief of Defence Staff; Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru – Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo – Chief of Naval Staff; and Air Vice Marshal Isiaka O. Amao – Chief of Air staff.

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, has constituted a panel made up of chairmen, deputy chairmen and some members of the military-related standing committees.

The nominees had also reeled out some of their plans for the Armed Forces.
