Senate Confirms Appointment Of Tinubu Nominees As NPC Commissioners

Senate has confirmed the appointment of President Tinubu’s nominees as NPC Commissioners.

 

NaijaOnPoint Nigeria reports that the Senate has confirmed 17 persons for appointment as commissioners of the National Population Commission (NPC) out of 19 nominated by President Bola Tinubu.

 

This Nigeria news platform understands that their confirmation followed the adoption of the screening report of the Committee on National Identity Card and Population at the Committee of the Whole on Wednesday.

 

 

The report was presented by the Chairman of the committee, Abdul Ningi (PDP Bauchi).

 

Mr Ningi, while presenting the report, said out of the 19 persons nominated, 17 appeared for the screening.

He said the nominees representing Ogun and Ondo States did not appear, following the recent political developments in their states.

 

He said the committee diligently screened the remaining 17 and found them to possess the minimal qualifications suitable for the appointment.

 

The Senate thereafter confirmed the nominees.

 

Those confirmed are Emmanuel Eke (Abia), Clifford Zirra (Adamawa), Chidi Ezeoke (Anambra), Isa Buratal (Borno), Alex Ukam (Cross River), Blessyn Brume-Maguha (Delta) and Jeremiah Nwankwegu (Ebonyi).
