Daughter of the Nigerian president, Fatima Buhari, has been appointed as a member of the board of trustees of the Chartered Institute of Forensic and Certified Fraud Examiners of Nigeria (CIFCFEN) recently.
The event took place at ANAN House in Abuja.
The Cable reported that speaking at the ceremony, Iliyasu Gashinbaki, CIFCFEN’s president, said Buhari joins the board with a wealth of experience garnered from the public sector and international organisations.
“She has been engaged in working in the development space and extensive experience with development partners,” he said.
“With the wisdom of the board, we found it necessary for more women to be admitted to the board. This is in tandem with international best practices of having gender balance on every board and we want to lead by example.”
Speaking during the occasion, Buhari expressed her gratitude to the Institute for considering her worthy of the appointment.
