Tinubu designates Akawor as federal commissioner of RMAFC

On Thursday, President Bola Tinubu made a significant announcement, designating Mr. Desmond Akawor as the Federal Commissioner representing Rivers State at the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC). This appointment, though pending confirmation by the Senate, fills the vacancy left by the untimely passing of the former RMAFC Federal Commissioner from Rivers State, Asondu Temple, earlier this month.

The news was communicated through a statement titled ‘President Tinubu approves appointment of RMAFC Federal Commissioner,’ issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale. In the statement, it was revealed that Akawor, the President’s choice for this role, comes with a wealth of experience and a commendable track record.
