President Ahmed Bola Tinubu has appointed Ahem Akindele Egbuwalo as the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and National Coordinator of the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).
Abujapress reports that President Tinubu suspended Halima Shehu as NSIPA national coordinator on Tuesday, January 2, over allegations of corruption and financial malfeasance during her tenure.

Shehu had assumed office in October 2023 following her confirmation by the Senate on October 18, 2023.

Egbuwalo steps into the role from his previous position as the National N-Power Programme manager. His appointment is seen as an interim measure, pending the outcome of the investigation into the allegations against Shehu.

The National Social Investment Programme is a critical initiative aimed at alleviating poverty and promoting social inclusion across Nigeria.

The appointment of Egbuwalo, with his background in managing the N-Power Programme, is seen as a strategic move to ensure continuity and expertise in the crucial area of social investment.
