…As he confirms the appointment of Acting DG, National Directorate of Employment.
President Muhammadu Buhari has formally confirmed the appointment of Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo as the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment.
The President’s social media aide, Mallam Garba Shehu, disclosed this on his official twitter handle. He said:
“President Muhammadu Buhari has formally conveyed to the Hon. Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, his approval of the nomination of Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo as the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment pending the appointment of a substantive Director-General for the Agency”
The term of appointment according to the President’s media aide is “…pending the appointment of a substantive Director-General for the Agency.”

The critics believe that the Buhari-led administration is the “government of the North, by the North and for the North.”
Here are some of the reactions that accompanies the President’s appointment:
