House of Representatives confirms the newly appointed Service Chiefs


The House of Representatives has confirmed the appointment of the newly appointed Service Chiefs.

The report of the Committee on Defence was presented by the Chairman, Babajimi Benson, during plenary on Tuesday and considered by the committee of the whole, before it was adopted by the House.

According to the committee chairman, the nominees were thoroughly screened.

The service chiefs were also screened by the Senate Committee on Defense.

Their confirmation by the House of Reps came shortly after the Senate nominated the immediate past service chiefs as non-career ambassadors, despite criticisms in some quarters.
