It said the nine-member committee which had since commenced sitting, had two weeks to complete the assignment and submit its recommendations to Malam Mohammed Bashar, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport.
Mr Haruna Jauro acting Director-General of NIMASA, said the exercise was aimed at ensuring proper staff placement in line with existing Federal Civil Service regulations.
