The Senate has received a formal request from President Muhammadu Buhari to confirm Professor Ayo C. Omotayo as Director-General (DG) of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPPS). 

 

The request was contained in a letter read on Tuesday during plenary by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, moments after the chamber resumed plenary from its eighteen working days recess. 

 

The Senate had adjourned the plenary on October 13, 2020, to enable Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of Government to defend their respective budget estimates for the year 2022 before the relevant committees of the National Assembly. 

 

President Buhari, in the letter, sought the confirmation of Professor Ayo Omotayo as Director-General of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies following Section 5(2) of the NIPSS Act 2004. 

 

The letter was titled: "Request for confirmation of Prof. Ayo C. Omotayo Ph.D. appointment as Director-General, National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS)".

 

It reads: "In accordance with the provision of Section 5 subsection 2 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies Act 2004, I write to present for confirmation by the Senate, the appointment of Prof. Ayo C. Omotayo as Director-General, National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS)".
