Business Amaechi Recommends Appointment of Hadiza Usman as NPA MD to President Buhari



Nigeria's Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has recommended the appointment of Hadiza Bala Usman as the new Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, to President Muhammadu Buhari.

If appointed, the 40 year-old chief of staff to the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, will be the first female MD of the agency.

She is expected to take over from Alhaji Habib Abdullahi, who was reinstated by Buhari after being sacked by Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.

Reports say Amaechi recommended her because two chief executives of the foremost parastatals under his ministry – Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) – are from the south, and he prefer to have an equitable distribution of appointments into the agencies under his ministry.
