President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the sack of Tor Uja, as the executive secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).
A statement issued by Willie Bassey, director of information, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF), in Abuja on Tuesday, said the sack is with immediate effect.
According to him, Uja’s sack was “in line with the provision of Section 4, Sub-Section 3 of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission Act.
“Ujah has, therefore, been directed to hand over to Mrs Esther Kwaghe, Director of Administration in the commission, who is to oversee the office, pending the appointment of a substantive executive secretary,” the statement read.
President Buhari has also directed the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) to work out an appropriate framework for the operation of offshore account maintained by NCPC, and all other Federal Government agencies to streamline their operations.
