In a statement released by Special Assistant on Media & Publicity to the President, Reuben Abati on Friday, 2 of President Jonathan’s aides have been relieved of their appointments. The statement reads;
“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.”
No reason was given for their sack, but speculations are rife within that Emordi’s sack may not be unconnected with the drama at the House of Representatives when the NewPDP led by Kawu Baraje stormed the lower chambers.
