FG charges RMAFC on non-oil revenue, Buhari inaugurates boards

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday inaugurated chairmen and members of the Federal Character Commission, Federal Civil Service Commission and the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission.

The inauguration, which was witnessed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Kwara State Governor, Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari; and some ministers, among others, took place at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Mustapha later told State House correspondents that the Federal Government expected  the RMAFC to address the shortfall being recorded in the nation’s earnings by mobilising funds from the non-oil sector.

 He said,“The essence of the revenue mobilisation is to look at the non-oil sector, particularly in terms of mobilising revenue for the country. I believe that now that they have the full complement of their membership, they will be able to give it the necessary drive.

“The Federal Civil Service Commission is an institution that has the responsibility of looking at the federal civil service in terms of employment, promotion, capacity and we need a new civil service to take us to the next level.”

The President also inaugurated Muheeda Dankaka as the chairman of the FCC and 36 other members of the board.
