National Board of Revenue (NBR) Chairman Nazibur Rahman has been appointed as the principal secretary to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Nazibur will succeed Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, whose tenure will end on December 31 (today).
58-year-old Nazibur Rahman, a 1982 BCS recruit, had also headed the Department of Environment as the director general, multiple sources from the government said on Sunday.
He was the senior secretary at the Internal Resource Division prior to becoming the chairman of the revenue service in the country.
According to the country’s warrant of precedence, the principal secretary is just below the cabinet secretary but above the chiefs of the army, navy and air force.
