BREAKING: President Tinubu Makes Fresh Appointment


Akindele Egbuwalo, the National N-POWER Program Manager has been appointed as the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and National Coordinator of the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).

According to report, President Tinubu suspended Halima Shehu as NSIPA national coordinator on Tuesday, January 2, over allegations of corruption and financial malfeasance during her tenure.

Shehu had assumed office in October 2023 following her confirmation by the Senate on October 18, 2023.
