The House of Representatives has confirmed the appointment of the Service Chiefs appointed by President Bola Tinubu.
Their confirmations, which came through today, 19th July 2023, followed the adoption of the report of the House ad-hoc committee which screened them.
Recall that the lower chamber had on Monday commenced the screening of the service chiefs days after the Senate confirmed the appointment of the military chiefs.
The service chiefs whose appointments were confirmed are Maj. Gen. Christopher Musa (Chief of Defence Staff), Maj. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja (Chief of Army Staff), Rear Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla (Chief of Naval Staff), and AVM Hassan Abubakar (Chief of Air Staff).
The Chairman of the Adhoc Committee of the House, Babajimi Benson, had said members of the Armed Forces must adhere strictly to the provisions of the Appropriation Act and urged them to work in synergy by sharing intelligence.
He had further said that the performances of the service chiefs would be reviewed by the National Assembly if they are confirmed.
President Tinubu appointed the new service chiefs on June 19, 2023, three weeks after his inauguration.
