The Federal Government has sacked, with immediate effect, the Director General (DG) of the Bureau for Public Enterprises, Bolanle Onogoruwa, directing her to hand over to Benjamin Ezra Dikki, the most Senior Director in the Bureau.
Mr. Dikki will hold the position in an acting capacity.
The changes were contained in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) to the Vice President, Umar Sani.
The Senate had ceased to recognize Mrs. Onagoruwa as DG, and called for her removal for alleged wrongdoings.
It is not yet clear if the government will also remove Mrs Aruma Oteh, the DG of the Securities and Exchange Commission, whose removal has also been demanded by the House of Representatives.
