“Pam has worked for more than two decades in the area of International Criminal Justice, investigations and prosecution of the Rome Statutes.”
Governor Simon Lalong has expressed delight at the shortlisting of Ibrahim Pam as the only Nigerian among 12 candidates for the position of registrar of the International Court of Justice at The Hague.
Mr Pam is currently the executive director of Green Climate Fund in South Korea.
Mr Lalong expressed his delight in a statement issued in Jos on Tuesday by his spokesman, Makut Macham.
The governor said he was confident that Mr Pam would be successful in the selection process because of his qualifications, experience and knowledge.
“Pam has worked for more than two decades in the area of International Criminal Justice, investigations and prosecution of the Rome Statutes,” the Plateau governor stressed. “He is also experienced in crime investigation, internal oversight, administrative and criminal investigations, fraud risk management and fraud prevention among others.”
He added, “These will bring enormous value to the office when Pam gets appointed. He has worked previously and meritoriously at The Hague and at the African Development Bank.”
Mr Lalong described Mr Pam’s shortlisting as a thing of pride for Plateau, Nigeria and Africa.
According to the statement, the governor wished Mr Pam well, assuring him of the support and prayers of the people and government of Plateau, while urging him to continue to demonstrate the true “Plateau spirit of resilience, honesty, diligence and excellence.”
