“His Excellency, Governor Abdullahi Sule, has forwarded the name of Abubakar Odah Akum as Commissioner and Member of the Nasarawa State Executive Council to represent Nasarawa LGA.

“Abubakar Odah Akum has a proven track record, experience, and commitment to the state’s progress.

“His Excellency looks forward to the speedy consideration and confirmation of the nominee,” the Speaker said.

He directed the nominee to submit 30 copies of his Curriculum Vitae (CV) before the closure of work on Tuesday, October 10, and to appear for screening and possible confirmation on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
