President Muhammadu Buhari has terminated the appointment of the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Sanusi Ado Bayero, in what appears a reversal of his predecessor’s action.
The termination of Bayero’s appointment is with immediate effect, a statement by Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to the President.
He is to hand over the management of the NPA and all government property in his possession to Habibu Abdullahi who has been reinstated as Managing Director of the NPA by President Buhari.
President Buhari wishes Mr. Bayero well in his future endeavours.
Mr. Bayero’s was among former President Goodluck Jonathan last-minutes appointments.
He was appointed to the position on April 29 after Mr. Abdullahi’s removal.
No reason was given for Mr. Abdullahi’s removal at the time.
