The National Assembly Service Commission has approved the appointment of Ben Efeturi as the new deputy clerk to the National Assembly.
Mr. Efeturi, until his new appointment, was the clerk to the Senate. He is succeeding Muyiwa Adejokun who retired in April.
A statement by the Acting Secretary to the Commission, Olusanya Ajakaiye, on Monday said Mr. Efeturi’s appointment was in recognition of his hard work and administrative competence.
“I write to communicate to you the decision of the Commission at its 403rd meeting on Friday 21st November, 2014, approving your appointment as Deputy Clerk to the National Assembly.
“This is in exercise of its powers as provided in Section 6(b) of the National Assembly Service Act 2014. The appointment takes effect from 21st November, 2014,” the statement read.
The Commission charged Efeturi to continue to uphold the confidence reposed in him.
