The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the appointment of Adeleke Adewolu as Executive Commissioner on the governing board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
President Buhari had earlier sent the nomination of Ademolu to the Senate for confirmation. After Adewolu’s appointment, some lawmakers expressed concern that there is no member of governing board of the NCC from the southeast.
Senate President Ahmed Lawan then asked the committee to find out why there is no one from the southeast on the governing board.
The Senate Minority Leader Enyinnaya Abaribe in response said the former board member from the southeast resigned his appointment and President Buhari needs to nominate his replacement.
