At the time of the demolition, the property was being owned by Odubu's younger brother.

Senate Confirms Wakil Bukar As Federal Civil Service Commissioner 

The appointment of Wakil Bukar as Commissioner of the Federal Civil Service Commission by President Muhammadu Buhari has been approved by the Senate.

Following consideration of a report by the Senate Committee on Establishment and Public Service, the candidate was confirmed during Tuesday's plenary session.

Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, who presented the report, said the candidate met the constitutional requirements outlined in "the provisions of section 156 of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended)," which qualified him for appointment as a commissioner in the Federal Civil Service Commission.

Buhari Gives Reason For Preserving Public Jobs

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that his administration's dedication to the welfare of Nigerian employees is reflected in many Federal Government policies.

This, he said, includes minimum wage regulations, tax exemptions for minimum wage earners, and the retention of public sector employment after two recessions, among other things.

This comment was made by Buhari, who was joined by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, earlier today at the opening session of the 2021 National Labour Advisory Council.

Tinubu Backed For Presidency

Senator Abu Ibrahim, the former Senate Deputy Minority Chief Whip and a leading member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that if Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is elected President in 2023, Nigeria will be secure.

The former lawmaker from Katsina State spoke at the launch of the Bola Tinubu Support Organization in Abuja over the weekend (BTSO).

Many Nigerians have begun to recognize the possibility of Tinubu becoming President of the country ahead of the 2023 Presidential Election.

Do you think Tinubu is the right man to lead Nigerians from 2023?
