The Senate on Tuesday received President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to confirm Mr Adolphus Aghughu as the Auditor-General of the Federation.
Buhari’s request for confirmation was contained in a letter addressed to President of Senate Ahmad Lawan and read at the plenary.
Buhari also sought Senate’s confirmation of Mr Victor Chinemerem Murakor for appointment as Chairman of the Fiscal Responsibility Commission (FRC).
The Senate also received a request for confirmation of the appointment of Mr Larry Obinna Chukwu as Commissioner representing South-East at the Nigerian Law Reform Commission.
The Upper Chamber also received Buhari’s request for confirmation of Wukari Bukar as Commissioner representing Yobe, Boronu and Bauchi states at the Federal Civil Service Commission.
However, the Senate has adjourned plenary to Feb. 10, following the demise of a member of House of Representatives, Rep. Ossy Prestige, who represented Aba North and South Federal Constituency.
Recall that Prestige, elected on All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) platform, died after battling an undisclosed illness.
