President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has directed the withdrawal of the nomination of Engr. Imam Kashim Imam who was just recently appointed to serve as the Chairman Board of Directors of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA).

Reports says the appointment of Mr Imam Kashim, a 24-year-old fresh graduate was decided to be revoked, as it generates criticism across the country.

“The President’s withdrawal of the above-mentioned nomination is directed with immediate effect. All other appointments to the Board and Executive Management team of FERMA are not affected by this directive,” the statement read.
