President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of former Minister of Commerce Bello Maitama-Yusuf as member of the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).
Mr Yusuf, 72, was accused of corruption by the Buhari military administration in the early 1980s. He went into exile to avoid prosecution.
Mr Yusuf and late Umaru Dikko, then minister of transport, topped the list of most wanted fugitives by the Buhari military administration for alleged corruption.
Decades later, Buhari approves the appointment of his ‘most wanted fugitive’ as a member of the railway board that has Ibrahim Alhassan as chairman.
