Tinubu Appoints Hafsat Abubakar Bakari as NFIU Director Pending Senate Confirmation

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the appointment of Ms. Hafsat Abubakar Bakari to serve as the Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), pending her confirmation by the Senate.

Bakare ‘s appointment was made known on Tuesday in a statement signed by the President’s Spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale.

Before she was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of the NFIU, Bakare served as Deputy Director at the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit, and was at different times the Head of the General Services Unit; Head of the Strategy and Reorientation Unit, and Head of the Board Secretariat of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Ms. Bakare is a lawyer and financial intelligence expert with years of experience in anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing, and counter-proliferation financing (AML/CFT/CPF).

The President expects Ms. Bakari to bring her wealth of experience and expertise to full discharge in her new role, especially given the Tinubu-led administration’s war against illicit financial flows.
