The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the appointment of former Police Commissioner Solomon Arase (Rtd) as the new chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
The upper house confirmed the former police chief after passing a screening hurdle by the Senate Police Affairs Committee, led by Senator Jika Halliru (Bauchi Central).
Senator Halliru, who presented the committee’s report to the Senate in plenary session, said Arase had performed well in the screening process and had demonstrated his ability to lead the Police Service Commission (PSC) as its chairman.
After passing the report, the Senate unanimously confirmed Solomon Arasse as substantive chairman of the Police Services Commission.
It will be recalled that in a letter from President Muhammad Buhari to the Senate on Tuesday, read by the President of the Senate in the Red Room, Ahmad Rawan asked the Senate to consider and screen a committee of candidates for the post of Police Chief.
Buhari said the appointment was in compliance with Article 154(1) of the Amended 1999 Constitution.
The Senate adjourned the Red Hall plenary until 28 after the presidential elections in 2023 after considering several reports from its TETFUND committee seeking to establish higher education institutions and the health committee’s report on the legal framework for the establishment of the Federal Medical Center Okigwe in Imo State February.
