Buhari Appoints New National Population Commission Chairman

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday appointed Hassan Bashir as the acting executive chairman of the National Population Commission (NPC).

Bashir’s appointment follows the end of the tenure of Eze Duruiheoma,the former executive chairman of the commission on January 23, 2019.

Director-general of the commission, Ghaji Bello, announced the appointment in a letter signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Bashir is to take charge of activities of the commission pending the appointment of a substantive executive chairman. He is currently the most senior federal commissioner in the National Population Commission. Until his appointment, Hassan Bashir was a federal commissioner representing Bauchi State in the commission.

  1. Of course. They have to remove an "Eze" and appoint a "Bashir" or Audu. What else.
    The Eze was there in the first place because the previous governments appointed her.

  2. Hmmmmm, keep appointing. See strategy

  3. Another mallam again? Whats wrong with this buhari? Even during elections period when he is supposed to use this as an opportunity to appease either yorubas or ibo?

    1. he is not a hypocrite

    2. Do you read at all. Didnt you see where they wrote in acting capacity pending when a substantive chairman is appointed. He is the most senior person presently .

    3. Enter your reply...if you know buhari very well, you will understand the difference bw acting and substantive. he is only playing with words we want to hear

  4. Stella , u see am so?! Y him never remove him sister for that one role?! Are u still supporting this evil gonment?

  5. this is the republic of northern Muslims,buhari as president

  6. At this point ehn! I have given up on Buhari. His nepotism stinks, his incompetence is irritating, we do not deserve a pseudo president at this time in Nigeria history. We are really in a political quagmire o because Atiku is not better. Atiku will sell Nigeria to himself for free and collect change.

  7. Enter your comment...always acting fanatically, why must buhahi's appointment so selfish and sentimental in nature?

    I hope the cheap and money hungry political elites from the other Faith are watching at this impurities going on. mmmmm may God help Nigeria and the buhari led administration.

  8. I wonder if we have only Northerners in this country

  9. Enter your comment..The former chairman of Npopc is also an Ibo man,so what is a big deal in appointing a Hausa mam.

  10. Enter your comment...congratulations sir, I hope you have to consider about ad-hoc staff who spent more than ten years in commission without confirmation letter. I am one of them

  11. Seems the "right pegs are now in the right holes" as per the coming elections. Why do pple and institutions use data to misrepresent? Obviously, for certain gains, such as, power and resources control. Una go see how dem go use Naija census/population to promote reelection votes and the aforementioned reasons. Una still dey sidown?
