Senate Approves Buhari’s Request For Advisers



The Senate has given approval to President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to appoint 15 advisers.



    The approval was given about 24 hours after Buhari’s letter was read by the Senate on Tuesday.

    The present Senate will be officially disbanded on Thursday, while the 8th Assembly is set to resume next week.

    The approval signals Buhari’s first interaction with the National Assembly since assumption of office last Friday.

    The appointments would also be the second for the new president who has only named his media spokespersons and chief of protocol.
