President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has sworn in 17 Federal Commissioners of the National Population Commission.

The event took place at the Chamber of the Federal Executive Council, Aso Rock, Abuja on Wednesday, March 13, 2024.

It would be recalled that the President nominated the 20 Federal Commissioners for Senate screening and appointment last November.

But out of the 20 President Tinubu nominated, only 17 candidates appeared for the Senate’s screening on February 24, 2024, and were subsequently confirmed.

They include Emmanuel Trump Eke (Abia); Clifford Zirra (Adamawa); Chidi Ezeoke (Anambra); Isa Buratal (Borno); Alex Ukam (Cross River); Blessyn Brume-Maguha (Delta) and Jeremiah Ogbonna Nwankwegu (Ebonyi).

Others are Tony Alyejina (Edo); Ejike Ezeh (Enugu); Abubakar Damburam (Gombe); Uba Nnabue (Imo); Sa’adatu Garba (Kaduna); Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa (Kano); Yori Afolabii (Kogi); Mary Afan (Plateau); Saany Sale (Taraba) and Ogiri Henry (Rivers).

NewsOrient reports that these 17 new and returning commissioners finally took the oath of office in three batches of six, six, and five on Wednesday afternoon at the Council Chamber of the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
