The President of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has appointed Professor Attahiru Jega, former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to a new position.

Ekiti News reports that the announcement was made when Tinubu inaugurated the Presidential Committee on Implementation of Livestock Reforms at the presidential villa in Abuja on Tuesday.

President Tinubu appointed Professor Attahiru Jega as co-Chairman of the Committee established to address obstacles to agricultural productivity and create new opportunities benefiting farmers, herders, processors, and distributors in the livestock-farming value chain.

The President stressed that successful implementation of the reforms will require the collective efforts of committee members, including those from the public and private sectors, state governors, and all Nigerians.

President Tinubu said, “From here, I will appeal to everyone to remove every iota of partisan politics from this. I will assume the chairmanship of the committee as President and appoint Professor Attahiru Jega as my deputy or co-chair.

“This is not about politics; this is about opportunity. This is about our nation. While I may be absent, Jega will preside and continue to promote our objectives.”
