Professors Muhammad Sani Kallah (Katsina) and Kunle Cornelius Ajayi (Ekiti) have been sworn in as National Commissioners of the Independent National Electoral Commission by President Muhammadu Buhari (INEC). They were among the six senators that were cleared by the Senate in July of this year.
The inauguration took place yesterday at the State House in Abuja, ahead of the official launch of the eNaira and the 2022 Armed Forces Remembrance Day emblem.
As the 2023 general elections approach, Nigeria’s president asked foreign envoys to follow diplomatic etiquette and ethics.
At the Presidential Villa, he delivered the charge while receiving letters of credence from the ambassadors of Japan, the European Union, Burundi, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Cape Verde, France, Qatar, and the High Commissioners of Sierra Leone and Ghana.
Buhari reminded the diplomats that they were taking up their posts in Nigeria during a “very exciting political era.” He stated that the world’s most populous black country was open to additional foreign direct investment in the education, health, transportation, and agriculture sectors, and that improved bilateral relations would be welcomed.
APART from that, the President praised the armed services’ efforts to maintain peace, unity, and stability in the country, encouraging Nigerians to support them.
