President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Senate to confirm Edward Adamu as chairman of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), implying a replacement for Muiz Banire who was appointed to chair the organisation in 2018.

The president’s request for Adamu’s confirmation was conveyed via a letter to the Senate on Tuesday.
