Nigerian Senate on Thursday accepted the nomination of the Service Chiefs after they were transmitted to the Senate by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The confirmation followed the screening by the Committee of the whole which was presided over by the Senate President, Godswill Obot Akpabío.

The nominees were earlier asked to introduce themselves, which they did.

The Senate then went into a close-door section to interface with the nominees on security-related issues.
