Their confirmation followed the consideration of a report of the Joint Senate Committee on Defence, Army, Navy and Air Force chaired by Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko.

Wamakko, in his report, said the nominees possess the requisite knowledge and expertise.

In his remarks, Senate President Ahmad Lawan urged the new service chiefs to take the fight to bandits and other criminals.

He also called for inter agency cooperation between the security agencies.
