El-Rufai appoints Momale vice-chairman Kaduna Peace Commission
Governor Nasir El-Rufai has appointed Saleh Momale as the Vice-Chairman of Kaduna State Peace Commission, with Rebecca Sako-John as Permanent Commissioner.
Mr El-Rufai announced the appointments on Saturday through a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye.
He said the commission was established in 2017 and is chaired by Secretary-General of the Anglican Communion and former Archbishop of Kaduna, Josiah Idowu-Fearon.
“At inception, the government named Priscilla Ankut as Executive Vice Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, and Dr Momale and Khadijah Hawaja Gambo as pioneer permanent commissioners,” he said.
“After four years of distinguished service, Priscilla Ankut, the pioneer Executive Vice Chairman of the Kaduna State Peace Commission, is taking up new responsibilities with the African Union,” the statement added.
The statement said El-Rufai expressed gratitude for Ms Ankut’s contribution to the advancement of peace and harmony in the state.
“As she moves on to assume another peace-building position at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, we want Priscilla to know that we are proud of her as a daughter of Kaduna State, and we are elated by AU’s recognition of her proven capabilities,” the governor was quoted as saying.
The governor expressed confidence “that she will bring her national experience scaled up to the continental level. The government and people of Kaduna State wish her every success”.
