President Bola Tinubu has asked Aliyu Abubakar Aziz, the director-general and chief executive officer, (CEO) of the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, to proceed on a 90-day-pre-retirement leave.

Former President Muhammadu Buhari had in November 2015 ratified the appointment of Aziz as the CEO of the commission.

Buhari renewed the tenure of Aziz when it expired in 2019 to allow him serve a second term  of years – expected to end in November this year.

Tinubu in the statement also approved the appointment of Bisoyo Coker-Odusote to serve as the acting director-general and CEO of NIMC.

Ngelale said the appointment, which is also for a period of 90 days, would take effect from August 24, 2023, after which, a full term of four years will begin as the substantive NIMC director-general and CEO, beginning on November 24, 2023.

Coker-Odusote is the current general manager and CEO of the Lagos State Infrastructure Maintenance and Regulatory Agency (LASIMRA).

More so, Tinubu approved the appointment of Yusuf Buba Yakub to serve as the director/CEO of the Directorate of Technical Aid Corps (DTAC).

“This appointment takes immediate effect,” Ngelale said.

He said the decision follows the recent expiration of the tenure of Pius Osunyikanmi, former DTAC director/CEO.

Yakub is a member of the house of representatives from Gombi/Hong federal constituency in Adamawa.
