President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the termination of Mrs. Aisha
Umar as his Special Assistant on Social Development.
A terse statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by Mr. Sam Nwaobasi, the
Special Assistant (Media) to the Secretary to the Government of the
Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim with Ref. No: PPR/OSGF/PR/02 did
not however give any reason for the action.
According to him, the termination of Umar's appointment was "with
effect from the November 25, 2013."
The President had exactly three months ago sacked the Minister of
Youth Development, Inuwa Abdulkadir, over the mishandling of the
National Youth Council of Nigeria's elections in Makurdi and Minna
which resulted in the factionalisation of NYCN.
The President has also sacked his Special Adviser on National Assembly
Matters, Mrs. Joy Emordi and his Special Adviser on the New
Partnership for Africa's Development, Dr. Tunji Olagunju.
