President Bola Tinubu has appointed Akindele Egbuwalo, the National N-POWER Program Manager as the acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and National Coordinator of the National Social Investment Programme Agency (NSIPA).

His appointment is coming after Halima Shehu was sacked as NSIPA national coordinator earlier today by the President.

NSIPA which is responsible for managing critical programs like N-Power and Conditional Cash Transfer, has been under scrutiny in recent times, with concerns raised about efficiency and effectiveness.

Shehu had assumed office in October 2023 following her confirmation by the Senate on October 18, 2023.
