The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has confirmed Mr. Abubakar Akum as a commissioner and member of the state Executive Council.

This followed the adoption of a motion by majority leader, Mohammed Omadefu (APC-Keana) and seconded by minority leader, Luka Zhekaba (PDP-Obi 11) at Wednesday’s plenary.

Akum would replace Mr. Aliyu Ahmed, the state’s Commissioner for Local Government, Community Development, and Chieftaincy Affairs, who left after being appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI).

Speaking shortly, the Speaker, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, urged the nominee to discharge his duties without fear or favour.
