President Muhammadu Buhari has named Mr. Edward Adamu as Chairman of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria.
Naija news Understands that this was contained in a letter sent to the Senate by the President earlier today
This new development comes barely 24 hours after the President announced the replacement for FIRS’s Fowler with a northerner, a move criticized by Nigerians.
President Buhari has, however, written to the Senate seeking for the screening and confirmation of the new AMCON chairman.
The letter which was read at Tuesday’s plenary by Senate President, Dr. Ahamd Lawan, is reproduced below;
“In accordance with Section 10(1) of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) Act, 2010, I hereby present Mr. Edward Lametek Adamu for confirmation as Chairman of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria by the Distinguished Senate.
“While hoping that this request will receive the usual expeditious consideration of the Senate, please accept, Distinguished Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration.”
