Md Nojibur Rahman, the incumbent NBR Chairman and Senior Secretary at the Internal Resources Division, is likely to become the new Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, sources said.
He will succeed Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury.
According to Bangladesh’s warrant of precedence, the principal secretary is just below the Cabinet secretary but above the chiefs of the army, navy and air force.
Nojibur Rahman was born in 1960 in Sunamganj district.
He is set to go on post retirement leave from Dec 30, 2019.
