President Bola Tinubu has appointed Delu Bulus Yakubu as the pioneer national coordinator and chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Social Investment Programmes Agency (NSIPA).
A statement by Anjuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, on Thursday, said the appointment is subject to Senate confirmation.
In November 2022, the president had written to the National Assembly (NASS) seeking the passage of the executive bill.
NASS transmitted the bill to President Buhari after both chambers subsequently passed the bill.
The Buhari-led administration created the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in 2015 to ensure the equitable distribution of resources to vulnerable populations, including children, youth, and women.
