The Senate has confirmed Hon. Amaechi Nwoha as the commissioner representing the South East in the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC).

His confirmation follows the consideration of a report by the Committee on Establishment and Public Service chaired by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau (Kano Central).

Presenting the report at plenary on behalf of the Committee’s chairman, Senator Smart Adeyemi (Kogi West), said the nominee satisfied the requirement of section 4 of the National Assembly Service Commission Act 2014 (as amended).

He said Nwoha’s antecedents as a legislator in the Imo State House of Assembly make him suitable and competent for appointment in the NASC, adding that there was no petition received by the Committee against his nomination as Commissioner.

Meanwhile, the Senate has passed two bills for concurrence.

The bills are the Climate Change Bill, 2021, and Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo (Establishment) Bill, 2021.

Both bills for concurrence were sponsored by the Senate majority leader, Senator Yahaya Abdullahi (Kebbi North).
