Buhari has sent Lamido’s name to the Senate as the appointment requires confirmation by the legislature.
Lamido if confirmed will replace the former commissioner of the commission, Hassan Gambo, who died recently.
The president’s media aide, Femi Adesina, confirmed this in a statement on Monday, August 8, in Abuja.
Buhari, in a letter, addressed to President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, said Lamido was being nominated due to the death of Hassan Gambo, who occupied the position until his demise.
He, therefore, urged the Senate to confirm the nominee “in the usual expeditious manner”.
