President Muhammadu Buhari has re-appointed Mr. Uchechi N. Orji managing director of the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA), while also approving the nomination of Professor Isa Hayatu Chiroma as the director general of the Nigerian Law School.
A statement on Thursday by Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, explained that Orji was first appointed in October 2012 for an initial term of five years, renewable for another term of five years.
“Under his leadership, the NSIA has made remarkable strides, and its assets now stand at over $2 billion, which is invested in Nigerian Infrastructure, Economic Stabilisation and Future Generation Funds.
“In line with Section 16(2) of the NSIA Act, the National Economic Council had in July, this year, endorsed the renewal of Orji’s appointment, given his performance in the first term,” said the statement.
On the other hand, Prof. Chiroma will succeed Mr. Olanrewaju Onadeko, who is due for retirement.
Chiroma is a Professor of Law, and currently the Deputy Director in charge of the Yola Campus of the Nigerian Law School. He hails from Adamawa State.
