Senate Approves Tinubu’s Request To Appoint 20 Special Advisers
The Senate has approved President Bola Tinubu’s request to appoint 20 special advisers.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan read the president’s request on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday and it was approved through a voice vote during plenary.
The identities of the 20 special advisers were not disclosed in the request.
“Because there is no name for special advisers we will just approve it from here. We feel that that this is something of utmost urgency,” Lawan said.
This is coming a few days after Tinubu made his first appointments.
He appointed former Benue State Governor, Senator George Akume as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).
The President also appointed Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, as the Chief of Staff; and Senator Ibrahim Hadejia, a former deputy governor of Jigawa State, as the Deputy Chief of Staff.
