Buhari appoints Abubakar Fikpo as NDE Acting DG
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo as the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE).
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, made this known on Monday.
Shehu said Buhari has conveyed his approval to the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, who made the nomination.
Fikpo will be in office pending the appointment of a substantive Director-General.
Last month, the President sacked Mohammed Ladan Argungu as DG.
He directed Keyamo to nominate one of the most senior directors to assume office in an acting capacity.
This is coming days after the appointment of Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa (retd) as Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
