The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Dr Aminu Maida as the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

This followed the presentation and adoption of a report of the Committee on Communications by its Chairman, Sen. Bilbis Ikra (APC- Zamfara) at the Committee of the Whole on Thursday.

Presenting the report, Ikra urged the Senate to consider the request of President Bola Tinubu for the confirmation of Maida for appointment as the NCC Chairman.

He said the request was in accordance with Section 8 (1) of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Establishment Act, 2003.

Ikra, who said the committee had screened Maida, added that he passed all security clearance and possessed the requisite qualifications.

The lawmaker also said that Maida has professional experience, competence and regulatory capacity to further ensure success of the commission.

Ikra, therefore, urged the senate to approve the nomination.

Senate, thereafter confirmed the appointment of Maida, as Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC.(NAN) www.nannews.ng
