President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the renewal of Prof. Aliyu Jauro’s appointment as the director-general of the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) for a second and final term of four years.
A statement released by personal assistant on media and ICT, Olusegun Shogbola on behalf of the Minister of Environment, Barr. Mohammed Abdullahi said the appointment would take effect from February 27, 2023.
Jauro was initially appointed on February 26, 2019, for a period of four years. His reappointment for a second term was based on the significant achievements recorded by the Agency under his leadership over the last four years, particularly in the areas of compliance monitoring and enforcement of environmental regulations.
He unveiled a series of reforms, especially in the automation of environmental monitoring and compliance systems, which revolutionised online and real-time processing of environmental compliance document administration and management.
“The agency has commenced the implementation of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to achieve a circular economy in Nigeria,” the statement said.
