Ninety-five career ambassadors and non-career ambassadors-designate are to be posted to various Nigerian missions abroad, the Federal Government has said. This follows the approval of the posting of the envoys by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday by its Permanent Secretary, Ambassador Gabriel Aduda. While Aduda did not state when the President gave the approval, he noted that those to be posted included 43 career ambassadors and 52 non-career ambassadors.
He said following the development, the government has already commenced the process of requesting Agrément from the prospective host countries. The permanent secretary revealed that the ministry would organise an induction course for the ambassadors-designate and their spouses.
He explained that the event which would hold on a date to be announced soon was to prepare and facilitate the movement of the ambassadors-designate to their respective missions.
