Nigeria Senate will screen three non-executive Commissioners and one
Executive Commissioner for the Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC,
on Thursday.

The decision of the Senate followed an executive
communication by President Muhammadu Buhari, nominating the affected
persons, saying that their confirmation would strengthen the activities
of the Commission.


“That the Senate do consider the request of
Mr. President and Commander-Chief on the confirmation of the nomination
of the following persons as non-executive Commissioners of the Nigeria
Communication Commission (NCC) in accordance with Sections 8(1) of the
Nigeria Communication Commission.”

Before adopting the letter by
President Buhari, Deputy Chief Whip, Senator Sabi Abdulahi moved that an
ad-hoc committee be set up to screen the nominees.

Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan urged the nominees to appear
before the Committee, while asking the Committee to turn in their report
as soon as possible.

The nominees are:

1. Aliyu Saidu Abubakar, Non-executive Commissioner (North East)
2. Prof. Millionaire Abowei – Non-executive Commissioner (South South)
3. Abdullazeez Mohammed Salmon., Non-executive (North Central)
4. Engr. Uba A. S. Maska, Executive Commissioner (Re-appointment)
