President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Adeleke Adewolu as the Executive Commissioner of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and is seeking the approval of the Senate for confirmation. The Senate on Thursday received the request from the President in a letter dated 21 August 2019, which was read by the President of the Senate, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, on the floor of the upper chamber during plenary.
The letter reads: “In accordance with section 8(1) of the Nigerian Communications Commission’s Act, 2003, I hereby present Adeleke Moronfolu Adewolu for confirmation as Executive Commissioner of the Nigerian Communications Commission by the distinguished Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” “While hoping that this request will receive the usual expeditious consideration of the distinguished Senate, please accept, Mr. Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration”.
Adewolu is expected to replace Sunday Dare as the South West Zone’s representative on the board of the NCC. Dare is now the Minister of Youth and Sports.
