The Peoples Democratic Party has called out the 9th Senate for confirmed former Service Chiefs as non-career Ambassador-Designates on Tuesday.
PDP in a post on Twitter noted that the confirmation of the former service of chiefs would not stop the International Criminal Court, ICC, from investigating and prosecuting them.
The party wrote, “The @OfficialPDPNig berates the @OfficialAPCNg leadership in the
@NGRSenate for betraying Nigerians by clearing the former services chiefs for ambassadorial portfolios despite reports of crime against humanity committed under their command.”
“The party however insisted that the clearance will not stop the investigation and possible prosecution of the accused commanders by the @IntlCrimCourt for crime against humanity, which preliminary steps have already commenced by the ICC.”
Naija News had earlier reported that the Senate on Tuesday confirmed the former Service Chiefs as Nigerian Envoy.
This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari nominated the former Service Chiefs as envoy.
Service Chiefs confirmed include: Retired Defense Chief Abayomi Olonisakin, former Army Chief Tukur Buratai, former Navy Chief Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas and former Air Chief Sadique Abubakar.
