President Bola Tinubu has requested the Senate to expeditiously confirm the sack of the chairman of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera.
This is contained in a letter by President Bola Tinubu read out by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, during plenary on Tuesday.
Tinubu also sought the confirmation of Oluwole Andama as the Executive Director of the Midstream and Downstream Gas Infrastructure Fund in the Nigerian Midstream, Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority.
Senate President, however, referred both requests by the President to the Senate Committee of the Whole and Senate Committee on Gas and Downstream.
The Senate thereafter entered into an executive section to discuss urgent matters of national importance, which Sen Godswill Akpabio hinted to be around national security.
