Maureen Tamuno’s Well-deserved Appointment

When she was appointed as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Jamaica, Dr. Maureen Tamuno, cut a different portrait; diligent, suave, and gracious to the bones. She was the perfect embodiment of panache and progressive diplomacy.

During her three-year tenure as a diplomat, Tamuno displayed diligence and understanding of her office, handling her roles with confidence. She was proactive and continually put the country on a global stage. She was always in the news for positive reasons and gradually established herself as a thoroughbred diplomat, while at the same time rewriting the bilateral relations between Nigeria and Jamaica.

Tamuno created and recreated a lot of projects that have strengthened the relationships between the two countries. So, it is not surprising that she won several awards and laurels for her efforts. Little wonder she received a rousing and heroic welcome after her tenure as an ambassador.

Many of her admirers commended her appointment last week as the Group Managing Director of Abuja Investment Company Limited (AICL) by the Minister to the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike. She was mentioned in glowing terms as an experienced public officer, entrepreneur, and diplomat, and was the Nigerian High Commissioner to Jamaica, Belize, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic.

With her wide international connections and rich pedigree, she is poised to reshape the agency and bring about sterling results for the Tinubu administration.

Reacting to the news of her appointment, Tamuno disclosed her readiness to hit the ground running and also work in line with the mandate of Mr. President in bringing ‘Renewed Hope’, especially to the Federal Capital Territory. She promised to swing into full action and work with all critical stakeholders to bring renewed Hope to the people of Abuja.

In her speech to the staff and management of AICL during her official assumption of office, she vowed to operate an open-door policy and urged everyone to uphold the highest standards of transparency, accountability and ethical business practices, while at the same time seeking their cooperation and support which would foster sustainable value and growth.
