Mr Mohammed is coming onboard as the sixth DG of NAPTIP since its inception in 2004.

The resumption of the new DG of NAPTIP followed the swapping order of two heads of agencies under the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, by the president.

Imaan Sulaiman-Ibrahim, who was the erstwhile DG of NAPTIP, moved to the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons, while Mr Mohammed was moved to NAPTIP.
