President Buhari Sacks Jonathan’s Appointees


There are indications that President Muhammadu Buhari has finally succumbed to the demands of the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to sack all political appointees appointed by former President Goodluck Jonathan, reports Thisday.

The President has approved the sack of no fewer than 35 chief executives and directors-general‎ of some agencies of government.

Some leaders have mounted pressure on Buhari to sack the appointees and replace them with APC loyalists as compensation for their loyalty to the ruling party and contributing to his victory in the 2015presidential election.

The leaders noted that it was as if the President was rewarding members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and punishing APC members.

Prior to granting the request of the APC leaders, Buhari, it was gathered, had resisted pressure for the ouster of some of the heads of parastatals he inherited from, arguing that their tenures had not expired and in some cases is backed by law.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal, is expected to announce the removal of the chief executives and directors-general‎ of some agencies of government this week.
