The Service Chiefs were screened and their appointments approved. The Service Chiefs were screened by the Senators of the Defence Committee.
Senate Minority Leader, Senate George Akume said that the Senate had to screen the Service Chiefs because they are apolitical and serve the entire nation. He urged the new service chiefs to live up to the expectations of the people.
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremmadu who presided over the session stated that it was in the interest of the nation that the Senate lived above political consideration.
