President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, sacked the Executive Secretary of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Dr Abdullahi Bichi Baffa.
Reasons behind the sack are still sketchy but sources within the government say that the sack was with immediate effect.
Following this development, Baffa was replaced by Professor Suleiman Bogoro, his predecessor.
A statement signed by Benjamin Ben Goong, Deputy Director of Information at the Federal Ministry of Education, dated January 21, 2019, noted that Bogoro’s reinstatement is to take immediate effect.
The statement reads: “The Federal Government has approved the reinstatement of Professor Suleiman Elias Bogoro as the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND).
“A statement from the office of the honourable Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, said the re-instatement of Prof. Bogoro is with immediate effect, with the same terms and conditions as it were in his previous appointment and as stipulated in the TETFUND staff conditions of service.
“Prof. Suleiman Bogoro was the Executive Secretary of TETFUND between April 2014 and February 2016.”
Bichi, a lecturer at the Bayero University Kano, was a special adviser to the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu prior to his previous appointment.
