Hassan Bashir Replaces Eze Duruiheoma

The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has approved the appointment of Alhaji Hassan Bashir as the acting Executive Chairman of the National Population Commission.

A statement signed by the Director General of the Commission, Dr Ghaji Ismaila Bello, today in Abuja, showed that the appointment was conveyed in a letter signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Bashir is taking over from the former Executive Chairman of the Commission, Eze Duruiheoma whose tenure ended on January 23, 2019.

Bashir is to take charge of the activities of the Commission pending the appointment of a substantive Executive Chairman as he is the most senior Federal Commissioner in the National Population Commission at the moment.

“Until his appointment, Alhaji Hassan Bashir has been the Honourable Federal Commissioner representing Bauchi State in the Commission,” the statement stated.

Naija News reports that a similar move was made in the Police Commission following the completion of tenure and years of service of former  Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Adamu Mohammed was decorated as the acting Inspector General of Police.
