- Asabe Bashir will be taking over the leadership of the NCWD
- The appointment was made on Friday, April 9, by President Muhammadu Buhari
- Bashir was elected into the Borno state House of Assembly in 1997
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Asabe Vilita Bashir as the new director-general of the National Center for Women Development (NCWD).
Daily Nigerian reports that the appointment was announced by the minister of women affairs, Pauline Tallen.
Legit.ng gathered that the new director-general takes over the leadership of the NCWD on Monday, April 12.
Bashir was born in the Limankara community, Gwoza local government area of Borno state.
She obtained her first degree in Chemistry and Mathematics in 1988 from the University of Maiduguri and obtained Ph.D. in Educational Philosophy.
Bashir was elected into the Borno state House of Assembly in 1997.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that President Buhari appointed Jumai Audi as a chairperson of the Nigerian Law Reform Commission.
It was reported that the president also appointed Diana Okonta (south-south) and Ya’ana Yaro (northeast) as non-executive directors of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation.
That president wrote the Senate to confirm Ebele Chima as the commissioner for the southeast, Bassey Abia as commissioner for the south-south, and Mohammed Ibraheem as commissioner for the southwest.
Osinbajo said this on Wednesday, April 7, in Abuja while decorating Alkali with his new position.
He noted that the process of appointing Alkali was a departure from the past when the selection of the new IGP often meant the immediate retirement of a cohort of senior police officers whose vast experience and training would no longer be available to the country.
The vice president noted that Alkali would have access to many experienced senior officers to work within his new role as the nation's police chief.
