Tinubu swears in two NPC commissioners from Ogun, Osun

President Bola Tinubu has sworn in two additional commissioners of the National Population Commission (NPC).

Two months ago, the president inaugurated 17 commissioners after they had appeared before the committee on national identity card and population.

At the council chamber of the presidential villa on Monday, Tinubu swore in Fasuwa Johnson from Ogun state, and Amidu Raheem from Osun.

The 17 commissioners inaugurated in March are Emmanuel Eke (Abia), Chidi Ezeoke (Anambra), Alex Ukam (Cross River), Blessyn Brume-Maguha (Delta), and Jeremiah Nwankwegu (Ebonyi).


Others include Sa’adatu Garba (Kaduna), Aminu Tsanyawa (Kano), Yori Afolabi (Kogi), Mary Afan(Plateau), and Ogiri Henry (Rivers).

Those returned are Isa Buratai (Borno), Tony Alyejina (Edo), Clifford Zirra (Adamawa), Ejike Ezeh (Enugu), Abubakar Damburam (Gombe), Uba Nnabue (Imo), and Sani Sale (Taraba).

Before the federal executive council (FEC) went into a closed session, the cabinet observed a minute’s silence in honour of Fabian Osuji, a former minister of education; and Ogbonnaya Onu, former minister of science and technology.


Osuji, who died at the age of 82 in February, was minister during the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Onu was minister under former President Muhammadu Buhari. He died at 72.
