Senate Confirms Wakil Bukar As Federal Civil Service Commissioner


Wakil Bukar has been appointed as Commissioner for the Federal Civil Service Commission.

Newspot understands that the appointment was confirmed on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. Bukar’s appointment was coming after consideration of a report by the Committee on Establishment and Public Service during plenary.

Chairman of the Committee, Sen. Ibrahim Shekarau, observed that “the nominee possessed the requisite constitutional requirements.” Newspot understands that the requirements are specified under the provisions of section 156 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) that qualifies him to be appointed as a Commissioner in the Federal Civil Service Commission.

Shekarau while commenting on the appointment of the nominee said, “There is no adverse security report before the committee against the appointment of the nominee as a Commissioner in the Federal Civil Service Commissioner as both the DSS and Police Report submitted to the Committee on the life of the nominee to date did not reveal any iota of crime or wrongdoing against him.


He insisted that there was no petition before the Committee against the nomination and appointment of the nominee as a Commissioner.

Shekarau’s statement added: “Accordingly, he is hereby affirmed to be fit and the proper person for confirmation by the Senate for appointment as Commissioner in the Federal Civil Service Commission,”

The Senate, thereafter, confirmed Wakil’s nomination.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Senate has approved the establishment of an agency for the development of solid mineral resources.

Newspot understands that the lawmakers approved the agency during the plenary on Tuesday, March 23, a development coming following a series of debate on a bill sponsored by Senator Tanko Al-Makura, which seeks to encourage investment and foreign exchange earnings for the country.
