Tinubu appoints Ganduje’s son as Executive Director, Technical Services of the Rural Electrification Agency

Engr. Umar Abdullahi Umar, son of the former Governor of Kano state and current National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has been appointed as the Executive Director, Technical Services of the Rural Electrification Agency (REA). 

 

Umar was appointed into the new REA management team by President Bola Tinubu following the indefinite suspension slammed on the agency’s team led by Ahmad Salihijo.

 

Salhijo, who was appointed by former President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, was suspended alongside three directors who worked with him.

 

The directors are Olaniyi Alaba Netufo, Executive Director, Corporate Services; Barka Sajou, Executive Director, Technical Services; and Sa’adatu Balgore, Executive Director, Rural Electrification Fund (REF).

 

Umar won the APC ticket for Dawakin Tofa/Tofa /Rimin Gado constituency but lost the election to New Nigerian Peoples Party’s Hon Tijjani Jobe, who had previously worked at the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC). He also played a key role in the Tinubu/Shettima campaign, especially in the youth wing.
