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.
