President Buhari Sacks FCT Revenue Service Chairman and Chairman SEUBEB

President Muhammadu Buhari has again given clear indications that he is not done with cleaning the public service, especially agencies of the Federal government. He, on Wednesday, approved the sacking of the Chairman of the Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service and the Chairman, Secondary Education and Universal Basic Education Boards with immediate effect.
These were contained in a letter with reference no. SGF.19/S.81/T1/97 sent to the FCT Permanent Secretary, John Chukwu, on Wednesday by the Secretary to the Federal Government.
The FCT Deputy Director, Press, Mohammed Sule, on Thursday in Abuja quoted the letter as directing the affected chairmen to comply with the Federal Government directive on the dissolution of the governing boards of parastatals, agencies, institutions and government-owned companies.
The letter reads in part, “The Federal Government’s directive as contained in Circular Ref. No. SGF.19/S.81/XIX/964 on the dissolution of the Governing Boards of the Federal Government Parastatals, Agencies, Institutions and Government-owned companies remains extant.”
“In view of this directive, the FCT Permanent Secretary has directed the former Chairman of the FCT IRS to hand over all duties and responsibilities of his office as well as government belongings in his possession to the Director of Treasury, FCT, while the Chairmen of the Secondary Education Board and Universal Basic Education Board should hand over all duties and responsibilities of their offices as well as government belongings in their possession to the Directors/Secretaries of SEB and UBEB respectively,” the statement said.
He, on behalf of the Federal government, expressed appreciation to the officials for their contributions to the development of the Federal Capital Territory and wished them success in their future endevours.
