President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Senior lawyer, Festus Keyamo, SAN, and six others as members of the board of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation, NDIC.
This was disclosed by President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday after reading a letter from Buhari at the plenary on Tuesday seeking legislative approval for the appointments.
“In compliance with section 5 (4) of the Nigerian Deposit Insurance Act 2006, it is my pleasure to forward to distinguished senate the under listed nominees for confirmation as chairman and members of Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation. Their CVs are attached,” the letter read.
Others on the list are Olabode Akeem Mustapha (chairman, Ogun state), Garba Buba (Bauchi state), Bello Garba (Sokoto state), Joseph OJ Okalogu (Enugu state), Mustapha Adewale Mudashiru (Kwara state) and Adewale Adeleke (Ondo state).
Keyamo, a loyalist of the Buahri-led APC administration, was recently appointed as the spokesman of President Buhari’s 2019 campaign.
The former rights activist is to represent Delta State on the board.
