#Ministerialscreening: Senate screens Hajia Zainab Ahmed

The senate has screened ministerial nominee Zainab Ahmed from Kaduna state. She is an accountant by training and currently the Executive Secretary of Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI). During her presentation, Ahmed said Nigeria needs to identify illegal miners and work with them to ensure their activities are legal which will in turn increase the Internal generated revenue.

She identified poor management of our domestic crude oil as a major leakage in the oil sector. The ministerial nominee said her organisation has overtime blown the whistle on an corrupt practice in the oil sector. She said it has been very challenging working as the executive secretary of NEITI. She identified information collation as one of the challenges she has faced as the head of NEITI. She pledged to support any process that will help to bring back the missing Chibok girls. She said fighting corruption and impunity will help reduce unemployment in youths.

She was asked to take a bow and go.
