President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday urged the Senate to screen and confirm Alhaji Mohammed Shehu as the Chairman, Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).
Buhari’s request for the confirmation of Shehu was contained in a letter read at plenary by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
The request is as a result of the vacuum created by the resignation of the former chairman, Elias Mbam who was sworn-in in June, 2019. He resigned his appointment to contest for the Governorship seat in Ebonyi seat.
The letter from Buhari seeking the confirmation of the new nominee reads in part: “In accordance with the provision of Section 154 (1) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, I am pleased to forward for confirmation by the Senate, the appointment of Mohammed Bello Shehu, as the Chairman of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission.
“It is my hope that the Senate will consider and confirm the nominee in the usual expeditious manner.”
