The presidency has released the statement below announcing the renewal of the appointment of 12 non-career ambassadors.

The announcement was contained in a statement by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu.

Read Mr Shehu’s full statement below.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the renewal of the appointments of 12 non-career ambassadors, assuring Nigerians of fairness in representation and inclusiveness in all matters of governance.

The assurance from the president became necessary following recent complaints after announcement of 41 non-career ambassadors that some states were not captured.

The renewal of the appointments followed a performance evaluation, which necessitated an approval for continuation in office of the ambassadors, and the president will still decide if they will remain in their current postings.
