The Board of Trustees (BoT) of CISLAC said in a statement last night and signed by its Legal Director Adesina Oke that the appointment of Banwo, who is a Senior Programme Officer (Extractives) with CISLAC was made in line with provisions of the NEITI Act 2007 and that his appointment which took effect from 19th February 2016 runs for four years.

“As the main overseer of CISLAC’s extractive work, Mr. Banwo, who has led the organization’s campaign and advocacy for strengthening the implementation of the EITI process at sub-national and national levels in Nigeria and across the West African sub-region, has the requisite knowledge and network of support and collaboration with civil society to deliver on his assignment,” Oke said.
