The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Wednesday, confirmed the appointment of Muhammad Nami as the Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
President Muhammadu Buhari, last week, replaced Babatunde Fowler with Nami from the North.
Recall, the appointment generated a lot of concern in the polity, as Fowler also tried to retain the seat for a second term. He was, however, dropped by the president following mismanagement and financial ineptitude that affected his office.
Announcing Nami’s confirmation, the FIRS in a post on Twitter, said:
“The Senate a few minutes ago confirmed the appointment of Muhammad Nami as Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service.
“Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, slammed his gavel on Wednesday, signalling the confirmation of Nami’s appointment.”
