Also forwarded was the nomination of Engr. Wakil Bukar as Commissioner for Federal Civil Service Commission to the Senate Committee on Establishment and Public Service.

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, after referring both nominations to the Committees on Public Accounts and Establishment and Public Service gave the Committees two weeks to report back to the Upper Chamber.

This was contained in a statement by Lawan’s spokesman, Mr Ezrel Tabiowo, on Thursday in Abuja.
