In a statement released today Wednesday September 8, by the senior special assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the president has approved the appointment of Fatima Waziri-Azi as Mohammed’s replacement.

Fatima’s appointment was sequel to a recommendation of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq based on her “pedigree, vast experience and proven track record to drive the agency forward and consolidate on what has been achieved so far.”

The new NAPTIP DG is a former Head of Department of Public Law at the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, a Women’s Right advocate and campaigner against domestic and sexual based violence and an expert in Rule of Law.
