The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday evening, terminated the appointment of Hajiya Saratu Umar as the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission, with immediate effect.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Thursday titled ‘President Buhari terminates appointment of Saratu Umar as NIPC boss.’
Umar’s sacking comes barely a week after a scathing report unearthing fault lines in the Commission’s administration.
The report alluded the challenges to the NIPC boss’ “incompetence and mismanagement.”
