Saraki May Lose International Appointment

Published

 

Senate President Bukola Saraki may have his international appointment as Ambassador-at-Large offered him by the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) withdrawn.

Saraki was appointed in March and he is expected to lead diplomatic delegations on human rights issues across the world.

According to Daily Post, the Senate President is yet to commence documentation of the new appointment within the stipulated time given to him by IHRC.

The former governor of Kwara state was yet to make contact with the World’s Secretary General of the IHRC, a development that raised concerns within the Nigeria office of the IHRC.

The legal adviser to the IHRC in Nigeria and other African countries, Barrister Barnabas Aruwa, told Daily Post that the appointment would be withdrawn any moment.

He said: “Dr Saraki is losing the appointment as Ambassador-at-Large already. He has not done the documentation and the ultimatum has elapsed.

“The Commission office in Nigeria and other African countries of the IHRC have been put on notice.

“The World headquarters of the IHRC waited without further development since March 2019 when the IHRC in Nigeria and other African countries wrote him on behalf of the World’s Secretary-General.”
