The Senate has confirmed former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai and other former service chiefs as ambassadors on Tuesday. 

Senate Confirms Buratai, other Ex-service chiefs As Ambassadors

The former service chiefs are former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai; former Chief of Defence Staff, Gabriel Olonisakin; former Chief of Air Staff, Ibok Ibas; and former Chief of Naval Staff, Abubakar Sadique. 

The immediate past service chiefs were confirmed as non-career ambassadors despite criticisms. 

Though Senate Minority Leader Enyinaya Abaribe faulted this by questioning the nomination and confirmation of the ex-service chiefs when the Senate had on three different occasions called for their sack and also wondered why the petitions against the former service chiefs were dismissed without explanations,  Senate President Ahmad Lawan maintained that their confirmation cannot be held back because they are on a different assignment.

Lawan who further stopped further debate on the case, added that the former service chiefs had served the country to the best of their abilities.

President Buhari had on the 5 of February, sent their names to the senate. 

Nigerians had condemned their nomination, noting that it was a plan to shield them from prosecution by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for alleged abuses committed by the Nigerian military under their watch.
