Senate President Ahmad Lawan
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:

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?
