Director-General of Debt Management Office (DMO), Patience Oniha
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved renewal of the appointment of Patience Oniha as the Director-General of the Debt Management Office (DMO) for a second term of 5 years.
Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s media aide, who confirmed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said the reappointment was in accordance with Section IV (9-i) of the Debt Management Office (Establishment ETC) Act, 2003.
According to him, the renewal takes effect from July 1.
He said: ”Her appointment for a second term was based on the significant achievements recorded by the DMO in the last 5 years, under her leadership.
”Amongst the achievements are the introduction of Sukuk and Green Bonds to finance the development of infrastructure where there is a huge gap.
”Under her watch, as part of the initiatives to improve the sustainability of the public debt and opening up avenues for raising long term funds for corporates, the DMO introduced long term Bonds with tenors of 30 years in the domestic and international markets.
”This is aside from attracting diverse investors including retail investors to the FGN Bond Market.”
He also stated that, internally, Oniha introduced reforms to strengthen the DMO, as a critical agency in the public finance ecosystem of the country.
