Mamora Turns Down Buhari’s Appointment


Olorunnimbe Mamora, a former senator, has rejected his appointment as the Chairman of the Abuja Investment and Infrastructure Centre by President Muhammadu Buhari. A report in The Punch has suggested that Mamora rejected the appointment because he felt it was not befitting. He reportedly said he deserved a more pivotal role in the current administration after he served as the Deputy Director-General of the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation in 2015.

The report also said Mamora was listed to be the Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority in 2016 but was edged out by some powerful people in the system. He was also reportedly nominated as an ambassador in late 2016 but his name was withdrawn for unknown reasons without being contacted.

However, a governorship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress in the 2016 Ondo State governorship election, Jumoke Ajasin-Anifowoshe, has been named the chairman of the parastatal.

Ajasin-Anifowose, who is the daughter of the first Governor of the old Ondo State, Adekunle Ajasin, was sworn in by  Muhammad Bello, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.
