President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday approved the re-appointment of 12 non-career ambassadors, urging the appointees to keep upholding and promoting the values of stewardship to Nigeria.

The announcement was contained in a statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, which assured Nigerians of fairness in representation and inclusiveness in all matters of governance.

  9. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande (Kebbi),
  10. Modupe Irele (Lagos),
  11. Adeyinka Asekun (Ogun),
  12. Goni Bura (Yobe).

“The president, again, congratulates the ambassadors on the renewal, urging them to keep upholding and promoting the values of stewardship to Nigeria, while bridging good relations with other nations,” Shehu said.

KanyiDaily recalls President Buhari had on Wednesday forwarded the list of 41 non-career ambassadors to the Senate for confirmation.
