Just In: Saraki Loses Appointment




I Faced Many Persecutions During My Tenure As The Senate President - Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki has lost his appointment as Ambassador-at-large of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC).

Naija News gathered that the former Governor of Kwara State lost the appointment because he did not meet up with the necessary protocols demanded of the office.

Saraki would have to be officially decorated by the Secretary-General of the agency, a development which was not complied with since the appointment in March 2019.


In a letter issued and signed by the head of the IHRC Nigeria, Dr Friday Sani, the Senate President was not forthcoming despite several meetings with officials of the International agency.

Sani disclosed that Saraki had been put on prior notice by the Nigerian Central Office and Africa of IHRC in which he was properly briefed, regretting that the withdrawal of nomination became necessary in line with the protocols of the agency.

“In view of the recent event towards perfection of the intended decoration and the overall interest of the organization in Africa and the world, we hereby withdraw your nomination as Ambassador-at-large,” the letter reads in part.


The letter added that the International Human Rights Commission’s World Secretary-General, Mr Rafal Marcin Wasik has been informed of the development.
