Resident Muhammadu Buhari approved the dissolution of the board of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) on Thursday in Abuja.
Mr Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina, stated that the president approved the appointment of James Akintola as the new board chairman to succeed Tunde Lemo.
Mr Lemo had earlier voluntarily stepped down from the position as FERMA board chairman.
“Other members of the old board have their terms renewed,” Mr Adesina stated.
Mr Akinola holds a B.Sc. Architecture degree from the University of Lagos, and an M.Sc. in the same field from the then University of Ife, now Obafemi Awolowo University.
