Jonathan’s sack tsunami continues, NIPC boss gets the boot

In what seems a sacking galore of heads of some government agencies, President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday sacked the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission, Mrs. Saratu Altine Umar, with immediate effect.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the president, Dr. Reuben Abati.

Mrs. Uju Aisha Hassan-Baba was named as Umar’s replacement.

Again, no reason was given for the decision to relieve Umar of her appointment.

The new Executive Secretary/Chief Executive had served previously as Director-General, Legal Aid Council of Nigeria, Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in Anambra State and Director, Legal Services, Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.

“President Jonathan thanks the out-going Executive Secretary/Chief Executive for her services and wishes her well in her future endeavours,” the statement added.
