Just days after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the replacement of 13 vice chancellors of Nigerian universities, the hammer has fallen on the heads of the six information-related parastatals under the ministry of information and culture.
The minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made the announcement today Monday, February 15 during a meeting he held with the chief executives of the Nigerian Television Authority, Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, Voice of Nigeria, News Agency of Nigeria, Nigerian Broadcasting Commission and the National Orientation Agency.
The sack was contained in a statement made available to this effect by Segun Adeyemi, SA to the minister, which directed the disengaged Chief Executives to hand over to the most senior officials in their various establishments.
The affected are the director-generals of NTA, Sola Omole; FRCN, Ladan Salihu; VON, Sam Worlu; NOA, Mike Omeri; NBC, Emeka Mba; and the Managing Director of NAN, Ima Niboro.
Mohammed thanked them for their service to the nation and wished them the best of luck in their future endeavours.
Recall that all the DGs were appointed at different times by President Goodluck Jonathan.
