Tinubu’s Directive Initiates Terminal Leave For NIMC DG

Date:

In a move led by President Bola Tinubu, Aliyu Abubakar Aziz, the Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), has been instructed to commence a 90-day pre-retirement leave.

Effective August 24, 2023, this leave marks the beginning of his retirement from service, scheduled for November 24, 2023. The communication came through a statement issued by Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

Back in November 2015, then-President Muhammadu Buhari gave the nod to Aziz’s appointment as the CEO of the commission. Subsequently, Aziz’s tenure was renewed in 2019 by Buhari, enabling him to serve a second term set to conclude this November.

To fill the gap, Bisoye Coker-Odusote has been designated to serve as the acting Director-General and CEO of NIMC; a role approved by Tinubu. This appointment, spanning 90 days, takes effect from August 24, 2023. Upon completion, a full four-year term as the substantive NIMC director-general and CEO will commence on November 24, 2023.

Coker-Odusote, known for her current role as General Manager and CEO of the Lagos State Infrastructure Maintenance and Regulatory Agency (LASIMRA), is set to take on this pivotal responsibility.

Furthermore, President Tinubu has ratified the selection of Yusuf Buba Yakub as the Director/CEO of the Directorate of Technical Aid Corps (DTAC). The appointment, effective immediately, follows the conclusion of the tenure of Pius Osunyikanmi, the former DTAC director/CEO.

Yakub, a representative from Gombi/Hong federal constituency in Adamawa, currently serves as a member of the House of Representatives.
