Chairman Board of Directors of the Federal Housing Authority Senator Shuaibu Lawal Wednesday inaugurated a three – man Transitional Management Committee for the agency.
This development followed the expiration of the authority’s former management led by Professor Mohammed Al- Amin on the 6th of May, 2019.
In a brief ceremony attended by the members of the Board of Directors, Lawal said the committee became necessary after the expiration of the previous management to ensure that no management vaccum is created in the agency and for its smooth running.
He said: “Since the last regime has ended, and decision for the next one is yet to be taken, there is therefore the need for you to hold forth , until a new management is put in place by government.
“I charge you to put in your best, work diligently and turn this place around. You need to go to work immediately and do not be distracted by your acting capacity. No matter how long it takes, a new management will come, so I charge you to work very hard in your acting capacities, until the president makes a substantive appointment.
The new FHA Transitional Management Committee has Barrister Umar S Gonto as the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jona Saidu as the acting Head, Housing Finance, Accounts and Corporate Services Directorate, and Barrister Hajara Kadiri as the acting Head, Business Development Directorate.
Similarly, Ms Ebere Alalibo, an Assistant General Manager, Board Secretariat, has taken over as the acting Secretary to the Board, a position held by by Gonto, until his recent appointment, as the FHA’s CEO.
