Stalwart of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has condoled with the family of former Chairman of Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission Hamman Tukur, who died over the weekend.
Speaking through his media aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu described Tukura as a distinguished Nigerian who served the country creditably in different areas of specialisation.
The APC leader commended him for standing firm and holding to the ideals of professionalism and transparency while in office during the time of President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He said, “though he was appointed by President Obasanjo in 1999, Tukur refused to be cowed in the discharge of his duties and implementation of the revenue allocation formula and other issues around revenue allocation.
”He left indelible marks at RMAFC, leading the way in resolving several disputed oil wells among states in the Niger Delta region and monitoring sources of revenue from both oil and non-oil sectors.
”His efforts led to important improvement in accruals to the Federation Account during the period.”
