Six Months After Confirmation, Buhari Approves Envoys’ Posting

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the posting of ambassador-designates to Nigerian Missions abroad.

The list includes 43 career ambassadors and 52 non-career ambassadors.

This development comes after six months after the confirmation of these envoy-designates by the Senate.

The delayed posting of the 95 ambassadors had left Nigeria’s foreign missions without leadership.

Sources attributed the delay to the intense lobbying by non-career ambassadors, who are candidates of powerful politicians, including governors.

They were said to have lobbied for the Nigerian missions in the United Kingdom, the United States and other Western European countries, thereby delaying the deployment of the envoys.

In a statement of Tuesday, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Gabriel Aduda, said that the process of requesting agreement from the prospective host countries had commenced.

The statement reads partly, “There will be an induction course for the Ambassador-designates and their spouses which will hold on a date to be announced shortly to prepare and facilitate the movement of the envoys to their respective missions.”
