Chijioke Okoli SAN, former Chairman Nigerian Bar Association Lagos branch and a founding partner and Principal Partner of Delphi law advisory mentioned that ambassadorial appointment is at the prerogative of the president.
Speaking during an interview on City Talks with Reuben Abati, monitored by Abati Media on Saturday, Okoli said that “the appointments of the ex-service chiefs does not grant them diplomatic immunity.”
Okoli stated that the conduct of the erstwhile service Chiefs concerning persecution, insurgence and other things are in public domain.
He asserted that the Western Nations in the European Union (EU) and United States will not accept the erstwhile service chiefs as ambassadors when there are investigations by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against them.
According to him, some major western power have raised eyebrow concerning the conduct of ex-service chiefs.
“We are no China, we are not United States of America, and I don’t know why he wants to send these retired Generals?” Okoli said.
