Engr. Ahmed Kadi Amshi, a cousin of the President of the Nigeria Senate  Ahmad Lawan has been confirmed as Chairman of National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) amid outrage.

His confirmation took place on Wednesday. The outrage it was gathered came as a result of the nominee being related to the Senate President.

Engr. Amshi was also a Legislative Aide to the Senate President, Dr Ahmad Lawan before his appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The confirmation of Engr. Ahmed Kadi Amshi alongside eleven others followed a committee report which was submitted by the Chairman of Senate Committee on Establishment and Public Service, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.

Shekarau in the report submitted that the nominees made themselves available for screening and were found satisfactory to serve as members of the National Assembly Service Commission.

Those confirmed by Senators at the Committee of the whole are:

1. Babagana Modu – Borno

2. Sen. Abubakar Turare – Taraba

3. Hakeem Akano – Lagos

4. Tunrayo Akintomide – Ondo

5. Atanomeyorwi Francis – Delta

6. Bassey Etuk – Akwa Ibom

7. Hon,. Bilyaminu Yusuf Shinkafi – Zamfara

8. Sani Saidu Kazaure – – Jigawa

9. Senator Junius Ucha – Ebonyi

10.. Auwalu Aliyu Ohindase – Kogi

11. Muazu Ishaq – Nasarawa

A nominee from Imo State, Mr. Nnamdi Anyaele was, however, absent at the screening Committee and was subsequently declined confirmation.

In his ruling, President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan thanked the Committee for a job well done.

He’s probably copying from Maj Gen m buhari. Nepotism rules


Na Naija we dey, to get to the top na connect!!!.. May God help those of us wey na only God be our connect.. AMEN


Nepotism at its peak though am not surprised since it has become a norm in our society today..

We’ve indeed lost the credible ways of doing things here in Nigeria.. May God help us


If he is qualified then what’s wrong with putting his cousin?… Do you want him to put his enemy instead?

I am not in support but if his cousin can do the job, then why not?


Impunity..na turn by turn sha


He know that no be naija we dey? Very soon everybody go forget dem go go go back to their normal business


It’s a normal thing in Nigeria.


Na dem dem, it all revolves arnd the same circle …
