Amshi in the statement noted that the appointments were sequel to the approval by the Commission in a memorandum presented by the Committee on Establishment, Records and Training to the Commission on the need to fill existing vacancies in the National Assembly Management team.

He said, “The Commission further resolved that the outgoing Clerk to the National Assembly, Amos Ojo continues to work with the acting Clerk to the National Assembly, Sani Tambuwal, until his retirement date of 14th February 2023 to ensure the success of the ongoing 2023 Appropriation Bill’s processing that should be transmitted by only the substantive Clerk to the National Assembly accordance with the provisions of the Authentication Act.”

Sunday LENTORLITENEWS reported that some members of the National Assembly Service Commission had raised the alarm over plots by some individuals to influence the appointment of a new clerk for the commission.

The sources alleged that there were plans to appoint the current Secretary of the Finance and Accounts Department, Tambuwal, as the new Clerk.

His proposed appointment was said to be currently being masterminded by a sitting Governor, and the outgoing Clerk.

The sources had alleged that Tambuwal was a core finance staff member whose role was to oversee the management of funds and lacks the necessary skill set to competently run the office of the clerk to the National Assembly.
