See Names & States Of Origin Of New Ambassadors Posted By President Buhari
Finally, President Muhammad buhari approved the posting of ambassadors for different missions outside the country. The ambassadors are posted to overseas Nigerian embassies.
Career and non-career ambassadors consist of diplomats.
The selection of ambassadors came six months after the Senate had approved them. The delay in the posting of the ambassador left no leadership for some of the country’s foreign missions.
The delay was caused by intense lobbying by powerful politicians for their candidates for a juicy country. For top western nations such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and others, many are lobbying.
President Muhammad buhari will conduct an induction course with the ambassadors and their spouses before they finally resume their various missions. Ex-Minister of State for Defence during Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, Ademola Seriki (Lagos), was also part of the new ambassadors posted by President Muhammad buhari.

C.O. Nwachukwu (Abia); A. Kefas (Adamawa); R.U Brown (Akwa Ibom); Odudigbo (Anambra); Agbana (Bayelsa); B.M. Okoyen (Bayelsa); Okoko (Benue); A.M. Garba (Borno); M.I. Bashir (Borno); M.O. Abam (Cross River); Allotey (Cross River); G. E. Edokpa (Edo); Madubuike (Enugu).
