The House of Reps has confirmed the appointment of the newly sworn in Service Chiefs.
The report made by the Committee on Defence was presented by the Chairman, Babajimi Benson, during plenary today February 23 and it was considered by the committee of the whole, before it was adopted by the Green Chamber.
According to chairman of the committee, the nominees were screened thoroughly and certified fit for their positions. The service chiefs are also being screened by the Senate Committee on Defense.
The process had began last Wednesday when the new appointees were called upon to disclose their portfolios as well as their vision if they are confirmed to take on the new roles.
Their confirmation by the House of Representatives today comes shortly after the Senate nominated the immediate past service chiefs as non-career ambassadors, despite intensed criticisms from some quarters.
President Muhammadu Buhari had in January retired the former Service Chiefs and appointed these new ones. They assume office in the midst of heightening concerns of insecurity in many parts of the country.
