Appointed by President Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999, Engr Tukur led other members of the Commission in recommending and implementing the monetization policy of remuneration packages for political office holders in all tiers and arms of government. The policy drastically minimized public wastage of resources.

Though the Commission also recommended a new Revenue Allocation Formula that favored states and local governments, the Federal Government has nevertheless refused to submit it to the National Assembly for passage into law for implementation.
