President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of Mojoyinoluwa Dekalu-Thomas as the new managing director and chief executive officer of the Nigeria Electricity Liability Management Company (NELMCO).
The federal government owns NELMCO as a special purpose entity (SPE) with the responsibility of managing the liabilities and non-core assets of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
Tinubu’s spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, announced the appointment in a statement on Friday night.
He said Dekalu-Thomas’ appointment takes immediate effect and would last for a tenure of four years.
Dekalu-Thomas had served as the acting MD/CEO of NELMCO since the tenure of Adebayo Fagbemi, pioneer NELMCO MD/CEO, ended on May 8, 2023.
“Furthermore, her previous interim role and new substantive appointment has created a vacancy at her previous position: Executive Director, Liability Management,” the statement reads.
“Accordingly, President Tinubu has approved the appointment of Mr. Dimla Joel Nchinney to serve in NELMCO as the substantive Executive Director, Liability Management.”
Dekalu-Thomas made the list of women appointed by President Tinubu to head federal government agencies, aside from the ones appointed as ministers.
On Monday, the President approved the appointment of Engr. Bisoye Coker-Odusote to serve as the Acting Director-General/CEO of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
