The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo, has charged the new Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, Alhaji Garba-Abubakar, to be fair and firm in the discharge of his duties so as to move the commission to the Next Level.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that on Tuesday, January 7, President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the appointment of Mr A.G Abubabar as the new Registrar-General of the CAC, about two years after the commission had been without a substantive head.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday, the Deputy Director, Press of the ministry, Ibrahim Haruna, quoted the minister as giving the charge while presenting the appointment letter to the new R-G as well as the new board of the commission.
According to the statement, the minister said that the reconstitution of the board had put to rest the lingering leadership tussle facing the commission.
He urged all directors and staff of the commission to give the new Registrar-General maximum support and cooperation to move the commission forward.
Also, the Minister of State, Amb. Mariam Katagum, while congratulating the new Register-General, also appreciated the former Ag. Registrar-General, Hajiya Saratu Shafi’i, while on acting capacity.
She also urged the registrar to be fair and firm in the discharge of his duties and to work as a team to move the commission to the next level.
Earlier, the Permanent Secretary, Dr Nasir Sani-Gwarzo, stated that the main objective of the appointments was to bring peace and harmony to the commission.
Mr Gwarzo, while presenting the letter of appreciation to the former Ag. Registrar General, Saratu Shafi’i, for the role she played in her acting capacity, also commended the staff of the commission for their cooperation.
Responding, Mr Abubakar pledged his unflinching support and loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for finding them worthy for the appointments.
He pledged to be fair to all and transform the commission to a world class institution.
“We promise to fulfill the confidence reposed on us by the government,’’ he said.
