Amid outrage caused by the nomination of Engr. Ahmed Kadi Amshi who is a cousin of the President of the Nigeria Senate as Chairman of National Assembly Service Commission (NASC), he was on Wednesday confirmed as the Chairman of National Assembly Service Commission (NASC).

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.
