ANENIH APPOINTED AS HEAD OF NPA BOARD
President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday appointed controversial Edo politician, Tony Anenih, as Chairman of the Board of the Nigerian Ports Authority.
The appointment was announced in a statement late Thursday by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim.
The statement also contained the list of appointed board members for the Corporate Affairs Commission and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA.
