The appointment was made by Lai Mohammed, the minister of information and culture, by a released statement earlier today, and the DG has a tenure of five years.
Recall that the Former Director – General Modibbo Kawu was suspended as the Director Fifteen Months ago, and Armstrong Idachaba succeeded as the acting Director – General of the commission.
