President Tinubu Appoints Gbenga Alade As AMCON Boss

President Bola Tinubu has appointed Mr. Gbenga Alade as Chief Executive Officer of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

He succeeds Ahmed Kuru, who was appointed by former President Muhammadu Buhari in August 2015.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Ajuri Ngelale, confirmed the appointment in a statement on Thursday night in Abuja.

He said the president also appointed the trio of Aminu Ismail, Adeshola Lamidi, and Lucky Adaghe as Executive Directors in the agency.

The appointments, according to Ngelale, are subject to Senate confirmation.

“The President expects unflagging dedication, professionalism, and dutifulness from the new appointees to ensure that the operations of AMCON are more efficient, transparent, and in consonance with his determination to sanitize the nation’s financial system to maximise value and enhance investor confidence in the Nigerian economy,” he added.
