EKOHOTBLOG reports that Fatima Buhari, the daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari has been appointed as a member of the board of trustees of the Chartered Institute of Forensics and Certified Fraud Examiners of Nigeria (CIFCFEN).

The investiture which took place recently at ANAN House, Abuja, also witnessed the second direct induction of 17 members to the institute.


Speaking at the ceremony, CIFCFEN’s President, Iliyasu Gashinbaki,  said Buhari joined 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.

“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,” he said.


According to a statement issued by the institute, Buhari holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria; postgraduate in account and finance from Stratford College of Business and Management UK; master’s in business administration from Anglia Ruskin University, UK; and master’s in human resource management from the University of Northampton, UK.
