The  appointment which took effect from May 10, 2022, with a five-year nonrenewable tenure was announced in a statement signed by the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Mrs. Monilola Udoh, on Friday in Lagos.

Tutuwa was the Director of the Biotechnology Centre of the National Biotechnology Development Agency in Jalingo, Taraba, until her new appointment.
