The Senate, on Wednesday, confirmed Modibbo Hamman Tukur as the Director of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).
The confirmation followed the adoption of the report of the committee on anti-corruption and financial crimes headed by Sen Chukwuka Utazi (PDP, Enugu).
Tukur is the first director of the NFIU as the unit was given independence through a legislation by the National Assembly last year.
After the confirmation, Senate President Bukola Saraki congratulated Tukur on his appointment and subsequent confirmation, urging him to be professional in his duties.
