Nigerian Senate Cannot Confirm Newly Appointed Service Chiefs – Lawmaker

According to Senator Kabiru Marafa (APC, Zamfara), there was no way the service chiefs could be confirmed because “the Senate is not legally constituted.”

The National Assembly reconvenes Tuesday but the crisis that forced it to adjourn for one month seems to have
deepened, Daily Trust reports.

“The real issue is, the Senate is not properly constituted to confirm them now. Nigerians are all aware of how the
Senate was inaugurated using forged document,” Marafa said.

“We are lawmakers and we must be seen to be protecting the law. If some people can sit down and change the
Senate rules, then one day somebody will just insert something in the constitution and they’ll say it comes to
stand,” he said.
