Gov. Sule appoints new commissioner

Abubakar Akum, a commissioner-nominee from the Nasarawa Local Government Area, has been proposed by Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State to succeed Aliyu Ahmed, the previous commissioner for Local Government, Community Development, and Chieftaincy Affairs.

This was declared during a meeting of the state House of Assembly on Monday in Lafia by Ibrahim Abdullahi, speaker.

The nomination of Akum, according to Mr. Abdullahi, came after President Bola Tinubu named Aliyu Ahmed as the next Federal Commissioner/Chief Executive Officer of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons, NCFRMI.

“His Excellency, Gov. Abdullahi Sule has forwarded the name of Abubakar Akum as Commissioner and Member, State Executive Council to represent Nasarawa LGA.

“Akum is a person with proven antecedent, experience and commitment to the progress of the state.

“His Excellency looks forward for the speedy consideration and confirmation of the nominee,” the speaker said.

He directed the nominee to submit 30 copies of his Curriculum Vitae, CV, before the close of work on October 10 and appear for screening on October 11.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that in September, Tinubu approved the appointment of Mr Aliyu Ahmed, the former state Commissioner for LG and Chieftaincy Affairs, as the new Federal Commissioner/Chief Executive Officer of NCFRMI.
