Senate on Thursday confirmed the presidential nominees to serve as Commissioners for the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The confirmation followed a satisfactory report by the Ad-hoc Committee on the screening of nominees headed by Senator Florin, Teslim Kolawole representing Oyo Central Senatorial district.

“That the Senate do consider the report of the Ad-hoc Committee on the screening of Presidential Nominees on the confirmation of the nomination of the following persons for appointment as Executive Commissioner and non-executive Commissioners of the Nigerian Communications Commission.”

Senator Folarin added that the nominees have been screened in line with NCC Act, 2003.

Those confirmed are:

  1. Engr. Uba A. S. Maska – Executive Commissioner (North West)
    2. Aliyu Sa’idu Abubakar – Non-executive Commissioner (North East)
    3. Prof. Millionaire Abowei – Non-executive Commissioner (South-South)
    4. Abdulazeez Mohammed Salman – Non-executive Commissioner (North-Central)

However, Senator Yaroe Binos Dauda representing Adamawa South Senatorial district raised the issue of poor qualification of a nominee representing North East, Aliyu Sa’idu Abubakar, saying that he has Ordinary Diploma, but was overruled by the Senate President.
