AbdulHakeem: Appointed Board Chairman By Buhari In May, Sacked By Tinubu In June

That is the story of the immediate past chairman of the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), Dr AbdulHakeem AbdulLateef. He spent just 26 days in office.

AbdulLateef, before his resumption as board chairman, took to the social media and alleged that the corporation reeks of corruption and has been taken over by a ‘cabal,’ reversed himself in a letter within 24 hours after his video went viral.

The board chairman also faulted the corporation’s new Act saying it is one of the instruments of corruption.

But in a letter titled, “My best 26 days as a political leader,” AbdulLateef noted that within 26 days he, together with the Board of Directors, has brought transformational changes to improve the nation’s economy through the enhancement of the financial sector.

AbdulLateef’s appointment commenced effectively on May 25. But with the dissolution of all Federal Government Boards and parastatals except the ones listed in the Constitution on Monday June 19, the former chairman’s tenure ended after 26 days in office.

He said, “I am celebrating these glorious 26 days for the following reasons. I praise Allah for using me to achieve in 26 days what I may not have achieved in eight years if I do not worship Him.

“In 26 days my Lord used me to prove to all Nigerians that the renewed hope is possible only if all leaders and followers are sincerely committed to it.”

According to him, the main concern when he was appointed was his standing on the day of accountability.
