President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed Mr. Uchechi Orji as Managing Director of the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority.

Orji was first appointed in October 2012 for an initial term of five years, renewable for another term of five years.

A statement on Thursday by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, also said Buhari had approved the nomination of Prof. Isa Hayatu Chiroma as the new Director-General of the Nigerian Law School.

The statement said, “ Orji was first appointed in October 2012 for an initial term of five years, renewable for another term of five years.

“Under his leadership, the NSIA has made remarkable strides, and its assets now stand at over $2bn, which is invested in Nigerian Infrastructure, Economic Stabilisation and Future Generation Funds.

“In line with Section 16(2) of the NSIA Act, the National Economic Council had in July, this year, endorsed the renewal of Mr. Orji’s appointment, given his performance in the first term.”

Prof. Chiroma will succeed Mr. Olanrewaju Onadeko, who is due for retirement.

Chiroma, a Professor of Law, and currently the Deputy Director in charge of the Yola Campus of the Nigerian Law School, hails from Adamawa State.
