Tinubu’s plea was read out on the Senate floor on Tuesday by Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

The president did not disclose the identities of the potential special advisors.

Following the reading of the letter, the request was granted expeditiously by the higher parliamentary body.

The Senate President said that having a team to work with is of “utmost urgency.”

“Because there is no name for special advisers, we will just approve it from here,” Lawan said.

“We feel that that this is something of utmost urgency.”

Tinubu announced the selection of Femi Gbajabiamila, the departing Speaker of the House of Representatives, as his chief of staff only days before.

Former Special Duties Minister George Akume has been appointed Secretary to the Federation’s Government (SGF).

Ibrahim Hassan Hadejia, a former Jigawa state deputy governor, was named deputy head of staff.
