President Muhammadu Buhari has ratified the appointment of former Minister of Commerce, Bello Maitama-Yusuf, as member of the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Railway Corporation, NRC.
Special Assistant on New Media to the Governor of Jigawa State, Auwal Sankara, confirmed the appointment and revealed that Maitama-Yusuf was nominated by Muhammad Badaru Abubakar, Governor of the state.

He wrote on Facebook, “In recognition of his hard work, resilience and steadfastness in the progress of APC and development of Jigawa State and Nigeria at large, the Governor of Jigawa State Alhaji Muhammad Badaru Abubakar has facilitated the appointment of Senator Bello Maitama Yusuf as a Member of the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).”


The 74-year old Maitama-Yusuf, served as Minister of Internal Affairs in 1978 and later as Minister of Commerce in 1982.

He served as senator representing Jigawa South-West at the National Assembly between 1999 and 2007, initially on the platform of the All Nigeria People’s Party, ANPP.

He later defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP where he contested for the governorship of Jigawa State in 2007.

President Buhari had in 1983 accused Maitama-Yusuf of corruption during his military regime between 1983 to 1985.
The former Minister, however, went into exile to avoid prosecution.

Is the same Buhari that said nigeria youth are lazy but he only give job's to the old men and not care about the youth..... imagine giving job to someone who is above 70 years of age when they have younger ones who can do it perfectly.
