1 Mins read

The confirmation followed a satisfactory report of the Senate Committee on National Identity and National Population Commission.

The Nigerian Senate on Thursday confirmed Alhaji Isa Kwarra from Nasarawa State as Chairman of the National Population Commission.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Ahmed Saidu Alkali, said the nominees were screened and found satisfactory with the requisite qualifications to serve as Chairman and Commissioners.

According to him, there was no petition from anywhere that would have encumbered their nomination, hence, the Committee recommended their confirmation by the Committee of the whole.

Before the Senators voice vote for confirmation, Senator Sabi Abdullahi urged the lawmakers to confirm them since there was no controversy involving any of the nominees.

Other nominees that were confirmed as Commissioners are:

Ibrahim Mohammed – Bauchi
Ajayi Ayodeji Sunday – Ekiti
Hon. Joseph Kwali Shazin – FCT
Garba A.G. Zakar K/Hausa – Jigawa
Engr. Bala Almu Manye – Katsina
Gidado Rasak Folorunsho – Kwara
Mrs Bimbola Salu-Hundeyin – Lagos
Ali Silas Agara – Nasarawa
Mohammed Abdullahi Dattijo – Sokoto
Mai Aliyu Muhammed – Yobe
Muhammad Muttaka Rimi – Zamfara

In his remarks, Senate President, Dr. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan urged the team to be focused, saying that the last population census was in 2006, and that Nigerians were expecting much from them.
