President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has exempted the boards of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control from dissolution.
Per Second News reported on Monday that the President announced the dissolution of boards of the Federal Government’s parastatals, agencies, institutions, and government-owned companies.
