Buhari appointed DG of Lottery Commission without Senate's approval – Dino Melaye Speaks Out

Senator Dino Melaye, in a state of Order raised on Wednesday, expressed that the Director General of
National Lottery Commission was selected by President Muhammadu Buhari without affirmation of the Senate.

He explained that the appointment has seen the Director General discharging responsibilities in clear breach of section 8 (1) of the lottery act.

Dino cautioned that if the illegality was allowed, it would create disrespect for the rule of law.

The Senator said; “Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, as I speak, the DG has resumed at the Commission without passing through the checks of Senate as required by laws. Nigerians must be respected.” 

Senate President Bukola Saraki in response noted that the issues are weighty despite the fact that the matter came through order of personal explanation.

He stated that thorough investigation would be carried out, adding that the Senate will make sure that the appointee is stopped.

“The issues raised by Dino are weighty, though it came through a personal explanation. I think the matter may come through a motion so that the gentleman can stop the nonsense he is doing.”
