The President may be in London on vacation, however, important announcements continue to be made in his absence. This is good activity to note. After over a year in office, President Muhammadu Buhari has finally sent a list of 47 new ambassadors to the Nigerian Senate for confirmation.
This much-awaited process was announced by the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, during the sitting of the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday.
Mr Saraki read a letter from Mr Buhari containing the list which is yet to be made public.
It must be noted that Nigeria has had no ambassadors to UK, Germany, USA, China, U.N., Spain, Russia and France after previous envoys were removed by Mr Buhari after taking office in May 2015.
