President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the return of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) to the Office of the Vice President.

Former President Muhammadu Buhari, during his second term, removed NEMA and NAHCON from the supervision of the Office of Vice President against extant laws.

NAHCON was placed under the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs; NEMA was under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development created in 2019.

A statement by the Director of Information in the Office of the Vice President, Mr Olusola Abiola, said the President complied with various establishment Acts.

“The President has also approved a formal structure for the Office of the Vice President as well as an appropriate number of technical and administrative aides that will work with the Vice President in the discharge of his responsibilities,” the statement added.
