President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the Senate’s confirmation of his nomination of Mohammed Shehu as the Chairman of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC). The President’s request was contained in a letter read by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan during Wednesday’s plenary.
The letter reads in part: “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”.
The former chairman of the Commission, Engr. Elias Mbam had resigned in a letter dated April 11, 2022, to contest for the governor of Ebonyi State under the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
