An indication of why Senate President, Bukola Saraki, lost his appointment as the Ambassador-at-Large of the International Human Rights Commission (IHRC), has emerged.
A source, who is a member of the Senate President’s team, spoke to Our Reporter Friday night on the development.

He explained that Saraki was yet to make himself available for the job because his handlers decided to take their time to do due diligence on the organization and its affiliation with the United Nations (UN).

“We are still in the process of vetting the organization. We refuse to be rushed into anything and if the people have decided to take away the nomination, so be it,” the source said.
A letter issued and signed by head of the Nigerian Office, Dr. Friday Sani on Thursday, indicated that 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: “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.”

The letter added that the IHRC World Secretary-General, Mr. Rafal Marcin Wasik, has been informed of the decision.
