Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has lost appointment as “Ambassador-at-Large” of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC) for not meeting up with the necessary protocols demanded of the office.

We recalls that with the appointment which is dated since March 2019, Saraki was expected to lead the diplomatic team of the IHRC in various diplomatic missions across the world.

However, in a letter issued on Thursday by the Head of the Nigeria Central Office of the IHRC, Dr. Friday Sani, Saraki was not forthcoming despite several meetings with officials of the International agency.

The letter further indicated that the lawmaker had been put on prior notice by the Nigerian Central Office and Africa of IHRC in which he was properly briefed, regretting that the withdrawal of nomination became necessary in line with the protocols of the agency.

Part of the letter reads:
Quote
“In view of recent event towards perfection of the intended decoration and the overall interest of the organization in Africa and the world, we hereby withdraw your nomination as Ambassador-at-large of the International Human Rights Commission.”

The letter added that the International Human Rights Commission’s World Secretary-General, Mr. Rafal Marcin Wasik has been informed of the development.
