“He was the board Chairman of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN) and Commissioner of Finance in Lagos State from 2013 to 2015.”


Tinubu said he expects Gbeleyi to bring his vast experience and competence to bear in the role to strengthen the agency as the national resource centre for capacity building.

The president also urged Gbeleyi to sustain reforms through the promotion of a competitive private sector-driven economy, ensuring social accountability and efficient deployment of public resources.
