Tinubu appoints Desmond Akawor as RMAFC federal commissioner

Pending senate’s confirmation, President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of Desmond Akawor as the federal commissioner of the Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).

Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

Akawor’s appointment followed the demise of Asondu Temple, the immediate past RMAFC federal commissioner, earlier this month.

“Ambassador Akawor is a decorated public servant who has served the nation as Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Korea; Minister of State of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT); Sole Administrator of the Greater Port Harcourt Development Authority; CEO, Niger Delta River Basin Development Authority, and Executive Director, Nigerian Ports Authority (Engineering & Technical Services),” Ngelale said.

Ngelale said Tinubu tasked Akawor to deploy his robust experience across tiers of government toward the comprehensive reformation of processes that will ensure the most efficient and productive utilization of allocations to all three tiers of government in Nigeria.
