Key appointments into the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) have been confirmed by President Muhamadu Buhari.
In a letter to the Senate president, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, President Buhari confirmed the appointment of Kingsley Obiora as the deputy governor of the CBN as well as Captain Musa Shuaibu Nuru as NCAA's director-general.
The president on Tuesday, January 28, also confirmed the appointment of the director and member of the NCC.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the NCC had intensified regulatory efforts towards protecting the interests of telecoms consumers from the scourge of financial frauds through its multi-sectoral collaboration approach.
The commission demonstrated this at the 2019 fourth quarter Open Forum of the NCC’s Industry Consumer Advisory Forum (ICAF) in Abuja on Tuesday, December 10.
Legit.ng gathered that the forum provided opportunities for stakeholders to examine and address criminal acts of using telecoms platform for financial frauds with stakeholders calling on banks and telcos to step up measures to create robust awareness for their customers using telecoms platforms to carry out financial transactions.
In another post, Legit.ng reported that President Buhari had nominated Obiora as the new deputy governor of CBN.
Legit.ng reported that a statement issued by the presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Thursday, January 16, indicated that the president had already forwarded a letter nominating Obiora to the president of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan.
The statement said that if confirmed by the Senate, Obiora, who is an Alternate Executive Director at the Washington DC office of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), would be replacing Joseph Nnanna, who would retire on February 2, 2020.
Moreover, the president approved the appointment of Nuhu as the new director-general of the NCAA.
Until his appointment, Nuhu was Nigeria’s permanent representative to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
He is an airline pilot, a safety expert, a quality assurance lead auditor as well as an artificial intelligence expert.
