Barely a week after he sacked nine ministers, President Goodluck Jonathan again on Friday sacked two Special Advisers.
Those relieved of their appointments are Joy Emordi, Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters and Dr Tunji Olagunju, Special Adviser on NEPHAD.
“President Goodluck Jonathan has relieved Mrs. Joy Emordi of her appointment as Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters with immediate effect.
“The President has similarly terminated the appointment of Dr. Tunji Olagunju as his Special Adviser on the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).
“President Jonathan thanks Mrs. Emordi and Dr. Olagunju for their services and wishes them success in their future endeavours”, a terse statement issued by Presidential Media Adviser, Dr Reuben Abati reads.
It could not be ascertained what informed the sudden sack. When the nine ministers were sacked last week, political pundits linked it to the crisis rocking the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
