Jonathan re-appoints NITT D-G

28 February 2014, 19:13

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has re-appointed Dr Aminu Yusuf as the substantive Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of Transport Technology (NITT), Zaria, Kaduna State, for a second term of four years.

A statement by Paul Mshelizah, the Chief Public Relations Officer of the institute, said that the reappointment would take effect from March 19, when the first term would expire.

The statement said the renewal of the tenure was contained in a letter by the Minister of Transport,  Idris Umar, and signed by the Permanent Secretary, Nebolisa Emodi.

Aminu was first appointed as the Director-General and Chief Executive of  NITT on March 19, 2010.

He had within the first tenure contributed to the development of not only the institute but the transport industry in general, the statement said.

Some of his achievements included stabilisation of NITT long term programmes by affiliating the Post Graduate Programmes of the institute to Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria.

The statement added that the appointee had expanded activities and programmes of the institute to enable it to achieve its full mandate.

Aminu had also created additional departments and increased the institute’s partnership and collaboration with local and international organisations.
