Buhari Threatens To Sack Heads Of 50 Govt Agencies
The job of various chief executives of federal parastatals and agencies are presently under threat.
President Muhammadu Buhari has threatened to sack the chief executives of federal parastatals and agencies that fail to appear before the National Assembly to defend their budgets.
It was learnt that Buhari made his position known during a meeting he had with the leadership of the National Assembly at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday evening.
A source said that Buhari took the decision after the federal lawmakers succeeded in convincing him that they should not be blamed for the delay in passing the appropriation bill so far.
The source said the lawmakers told the President that of about 60 government parastatals and agencies, only about 10 chief executives had appeared before them to defend their budgets.
The federal lawmakers were also said to have reported some ministers who they claimed had not been cooperating with them to the President.
The source mentioned the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola; and the Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Kayode Fayemi, as some of the ministers whose cases came up at the meeting.
The source, however, did not disclose the response of the President on the ministers’ cases.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
