President Buhari Sacks Permanent Secretary For Awarding Contracts To Himself

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the sack of a Permanent Secretary, who has been allegedly using his office to defraud the Federal
Government through the award of phantom contracts worth billions of Naira to himself.

The permanent secretary, was appointed by Buhari in 2015, was fired on Tuesday, March
21st on the orders of the President.

A source in the ministry confirmed that two police officers drove the sacked permanent secretary from the Federal Secretariat, Abuja,
raising concerns as to what might have led to such an action.

A Presidency source confirmed that the President ordered the immediate removal of the
top civil servant, who presided over the affairs
of one of the strategic ministries handling intervention programmes in the country
following evidence that he awarded contracts to
companies belonging to him.
It was learnt that the sacked permanent
secretary had deployed several strategies to
evade a sting operation, which had been planned by one of the anti-graft agencies, thereby making it impossible for the operatives to track him down.
