The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Mrs. Aisha Dahir-Umar, as the substantive Director-General of the National Pension Commission (PenCom).
Another nominee who was also confirmed by the Senate was Dr Oyindasola Oluremi Oni, from North Central as Chairman.
Also confirmed were Clement Akintola (South-West); Ayim Nyerere (South-East) and Charles Emukowhale (South-South), as commissioners of the PenCom board.
The Senate, however, rejected the confirmation of Hannatu Musa (North-West) because she was unable to present her discharge certificate from the National Youths Service Corps.
Until her confirmation, Dahir-Umar, from the North-East geopolitical zone, held the position in acting capacity.
