President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the nomination of Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo as the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment.
This was revealed in a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity) on Monday.
Garba noted that the president has formally conveyed to the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, the approval of the nomination.
He added that Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo would be the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment pending the appointment of a substantive Director-General for the Agency.
Last month, the President relieved the former DG of the agency of his appointment, and directed the Minister to nominate an Acting DG to superintend over the Agency pending the appointment of a substantive DG.
