NPC federal commissioner, Mai Muhammed, is dead

Mai Muhammed, the Federal Commissioner representing Yobe in the National Population Commission, has died.

According to a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by the Acting Director, Public Affairs Department, Mrs Nkoyo Nwakusor, Muhammed died on Sunday while conducting a smaller hajj in Saudi Arabia.

It further stated that he was buried in accordance with Islamic customs.

“The commission received the sad news of his sudden demise as a rude shock and it is one great loss that has left a deep vacuum that will be difficult to fill.

“He was appointed and sworn-in as the NPC Federal Commissioner from Yobe by former President Muhammadu Buhari on Oct. 28, 2020 for a five-year tenure.”

According to the statement, Muhammed worked tirelessly to promote the noble objectives of the commission and made invaluable contributions towards the preparation for the forthcoming first digital Population and Housing Census in Nigeria.

It added that he brought to bear on the smooth conduct of the commission’s activities his wealth of experience, vast contact and goodwill.

“He lived a worthy life of service and devotion to Yobe and the nation.

“He will therefore be sorely missed for his contributions to population issues and national development as well as his fatherly role in the commission.” It stated.
