The Senate on Tuesday approved President Bola Tinubu’s appointment of 20 Special Advisers.
This came after the President’s letter to the Upper Chamber requesting approval.
He made the request in a letter to the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan which was read during plenary on Tuesday.
The letter titled “Appointment of Special Advisers” reads:
“In accordance with the Provisions of Section 151 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended, which confers on the President the powers to appoint special advisers to assist him in the performance of his functions,
“I write to request the kind consideration of the Senate to appoint 20 special advisers while hoping that the request will receive expeditious consideration of the Senate.”
