The Minister for Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has appointed Ambassador Maureen Tamuno, as the new Group Managing Director for the Abuja Investment Company Limited.

 

A statement from the Minister’s Office released to the media in Abuja, Thursday, says that the appointment takes immediate effect.

 

The statement said Tamuno is an “experienced public officer, entrepreneur, and diplomat”, who was Nigerian High Commissioner to Jamaica, Belize, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic.

 

Oftentimes, the woman Tamuno, has proven her stewardship to the selfless cause, having served in different capacities.

 

Before her position as an ambassador, Tamuno has held several positions, including her tenure as a top lawmaker in the Rivers State House of Assembly. Her beautiful story as the representative of her people in the Ogubolo Constituency remains one still being told in glowing terms.

 

Following her appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Jamaica in 2021, Tamuno immediately hit the ground running by showcasing herself as a perfect embodiment of panache and progressive diplomacy. Since then, she has proved beyond any doubt that she knows her onion very well by taking her assignment seriously as if she was born for the job.

 

She was always in the news for positive reasons and gradually established herself as a thoroughbred diplomat, while at the same time rewriting Nigeria’s diplomatic relationship with Jamaica in a positive note.

 

So, it is not surprising that her new appointment from the FCT minister has received applause and commendations from those that know her worth. Deservedly, she has been showered with encomium from her fans and admirers that spoke about her in glowing terms.

Hon. Enemi Alabo George, a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, did not mince his words when he called out Governor Sim Fubara for his reckless and violent actions. He boldly stated, “I dare you today, Sim Fubara.

 

”You may have had the guts to break the gates of the Rivers State House of Assembly quarters and force your way in, but let me tell you, you are nothing but a small man. Your threats and harassment, shooting and inducing fear into the wives and children of Assembly members are nothing but cowardly acts.”

George went on to remind Fubara of his past misdeeds, saying, “You burnt the hallowed chambers of the House of Assembly, attacked the residence of the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and even demolished the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex. Despite all this, we did not answer you, we thought it was just the madness of a minute. But know this, you can never break me.”

He further emphasized, “I have respected our friendship for a long time, but now, I refuse to hold back any longer. You know where I live, you know my apartment, why didn’t you come? I worked hard for you to become Governor, I even mobilized professionals from all works and corners of life to support you. But now, I will never bow to baal. You are nothing but a small man, and I will not be intimidated by you.”

On Thursday, May 9th, the House of Representatives made a commendable move by ordering the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to suspend the enforcement of the cybercrime levy introduced by the apex bank. This decision was made to ensure that the principles outlined in section 44(2a) of the Cybercrime Act are adhered to, and that Nigerians are not confused or misled in any way by the circular issued by the CBN.

The House of Representatives expressed their concern about the potential misunderstanding that could arise from the circular issued by the CBN, and urged the bank to retract the previous circular promptly and release a new one that aligns with the provisions of the Act.

This action was taken in response to a pressing issue raised by Minority Leader Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers) on behalf of all members. The House’s decision shows their commitment to promoting fairness, transparency, and accountability in Nigeria’s financial sector.
