The House of Representatives has approved Farouk Yahaya, a major general, as the Chief of Army Staff.
The confirmation followed the consideration of the report of the committee on defence on Tuesday.
The chairman of the committee, Babajimi Benson (APC, Lagos), presented the report and was considered by the Committee of the Whole.
Recall that the joint committee had screened Yahaya on June 15, 2021.
The new chief of army staff was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari on May 27 to replace Ibrahim Attahiru, a lieutenant general, who died in an air crash alongside 10 other officers and men of the army, on May 21.
