Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has lost appointment as “Ambassador-at-Large” of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) for failure to meet up the necessary protocols demanded of the office.

Recall that the Diplomatic Head of the Commission to Nigeria and other African Countries, Ambassador Friday Sani, in a letter dated March 16, 2019, stated that Saraki has been appointed as one of the revered Ambassadors-at-Large of the multinational body, following the approval of the World Secretary General of the IHRC.

Sani  in a letter issued on Thursday 30th May said Saraki was not forthcoming despite several meetings with officials of the International agency.

The letter also indicated that the senate president had been put on prior notice by the Nigerian Central Office and Africa of IHRC in which he was properly briefed, regretting that the withdrawal of nomination became necessary in line with the protocols of the agency.
