Dino Melaye

The former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye, on Wednesday, condemned the 9th Senate for confirming the former service chiefs as non-career ambassadors-designate.

Dino in a post on his Twitter account alleged that the lawmakers are working for the presidency.

He wrote, “Confirmation of service chief: Shame on the Senate who just confirmed that the Nigerian Senate is a department of Aso Rock and the Presidency.”

“Confirming those you recommended for sack more than once for gross incompetence as Ambassadors is a SHAME. SDM”

Recall that the Senate on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of the former Service Chiefs as non-career ambassadors-designate.

The confirmation of the nominees followed consideration of the report of the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

The former Service Chiefs confirmed are: General Abayomi G. Olonisakin (Rtd), Ekiti; Lt. General Tukur Y. Buratai (Rtd), Borno; Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete E. Ibas (Rtd), Cross River; and Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar (Rtd), Bauchi.
