In a surprising turn of events, President Bola Tinubu has withdrawn the nomination of Engr. Imam Kashim Imam as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA). The appointment of the 24-year-old had sparked concerns, with many questioning his qualifications and experience for the significant role.

Imam Kashim Imam, a mechanical engineering graduate, was appointed on October 13 for a renewable four-year term, as stipulated in the FERMA Amendment Act of 2007. However, the nomination was met with criticism, as many believed that his age and limited experience did not align with the requirements of the position.

The decision to withdraw Imam Kashim Imam’s nomination was announced by presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale, and it is effective immediately. Although no specific reason was provided for the withdrawal, it is evident that concerns about his readiness for the role played a significant part in this decision.

It is important to note that this withdrawal does not impact other appointments to the Board and Executive Management team of FERMA. Those appointments remain unaffected.
