Jonathan Sends Saratu Packing From Investment Promotion Council

Saratu Umar

President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Investment Promotion Council (NIPC), Saratu Umar.

Saratu was replaced by Uju Hassan-Baba who will be working on acting capacity.

This is coming on the heels of the spate of sacking and replacement of public servants by President Jonathan who has less than two weeks to leave office.

Only a couple of weeks ago, the President had sacked the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Sulieman Abba and appointed in his place Solomon Arase. He had also recently removed the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Abdullahi after appointing Sanusi Lamido in his stead.

Jonathan had also sacked Gbenga Elegbeleye, the Director General of the National Sports Commission (NSC).

Meanwhile, the President has appointed Mrs. Uju Aisha Hassan-Baba as replacement for Sara Umar. Mrs. Hassan-Baba, according to a statement from special adviser to the President on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, 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.
