Mohammed Bello Shehu’s nomination as chairman of the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission has been formally requested by President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retired) to the Senate.
The request was made in a letter that was read aloud in session on Wednesday by Senate President Ahmad Lawan.
This was contained in a statement by Special Assistant (Press) to Lawan, Dr. Ezrel Tabiowo, titled, ‘Buhari writes Senate to confirm Mohammed Bello as RMAFC Chair’.
The letter reads, “In accordance with the provision of Section 154 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, I am pleased to forward for confirmation by the Senate, the appointment of Mohammed Bello Shehu, as the Chairman of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission.
“His CV is attached herewith.
“It is my hope that the Senate will consider and confirm the nominee in the usual expeditious manner.”
In a related development, Lawan forwarded Buhari’s request to confirm the nomination of Joe Aniku Michael Ohiani for appointment as Substantive Director-General/CEO for the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission to the Committee on Works.
Also forwarded was the President’s request for the confirmation of Umar Yahaya as Co-Chairman of the Governing Council of Unclaimed Funds to the Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions.
Both nominees are expected to appear before the relevant Committees for screening.
The respective committees were given two weeks to report back to the Senate in plenary.
