President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed Uchechi N. Orji as Managing Director of the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) and has approved the nomination of Isa Hayatu Chiroma as Director General of the Nigerian Law School.

Presidential spokesperson Femi Adesina announced this on Thursday.

Mr. Orji was originally appointed as Managing Director of the NSIA in 2012 and served a five-year term, which is renewable for one more term.

The presidency also announced the approval of Mr. Chiroma, who will succeed Olanrewaju Onadeko as Director General of the Nigerian Law School. Mr. Onadeko is due for retirement.
