Breaking: Jonathan Fires NIPC BossFeatured, Latest News Monday, May 18th, 2015
President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), Mrs. Saratu Altine Umar.
A statement issued by the president’s spokesperson Reuben Abati said Mrs Saratu’s sack was with immediate effect.
According to Abati “Mrs. Uju Aisha Hassan-Baba takes over from Mrs. Saratu Altine Umar who has been relieved of her appointment as the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive of NIPC with immediate effect.”
“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.”
African Examiner gathered the Mrs Umar sack may not be unconnected with the current crisis rocking the agency and its workers. The NIPC Staff Union accused her of fraud, incompetence and high-handedness.
