In a recent development, President Bola Tinubu has greenlit the appointment of Ms. Hafsat Abubakar Bakari as the Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).

Pending confirmation by the Senate, Ms. Bakari, a seasoned lawyer and financial intelligence expert, is poised to take on the pivotal role.

With a robust background in anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing, and counter-proliferation financing (AML/CFT/CPF), Ms. Bakari’s credentials include serving as Deputy Director at the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit.

She has also held key positions at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), including Head of the General Services Unit, Head of the Strategy and Reorientation Unit, and Head of the Board Secretariat.

President Tinubu’s decision reflects a strategic move in the administration’s crackdown on illicit financial flows and unethical practices within certain segments of the nation’s foreign exchange markets.

Expectations are high that Ms Bakari will leverage her extensive experience and expertise to effectively fulfil her duties in this critical role.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity made this known on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
