Shocking: Saraki sacks 98 aides


It was indeed a shocking moment for the 98 aides of the number three man in Nigeria, Senate President Bukola Saraki as they were served sack letters.

Among the aides sacked by the senator is his director of protocol, head of administration and 96 others.

It was gathered that the mass deduction of the senator’s aides is to scale down the number of his aides from 300 to few above 200.

In a report gathered by Daily Trust, it was discovered that the affected aides have been issued sack letters through the office of the Chief of staff, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed.

Recall that Daily Trust had exclusively reported in March, 2016, how hundreds of aides engaged by Saraki, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun weighed down the National Assembly.

It was discovered that the last batch of the affected aides, were given their sack letters on Tuesday according to one of the senator’s aides who spoke with Daily Trust correspondent

“They started last Wednesday and they have finished distributing the letters on Tuesday. Out of the 300 aides, about 100 were affected. You know we have some of our colleagues that are based in Kwara,” he said.

He added that among those affected were the director of protocol, Arthur Ndiwe and the head of administration, Mrs Folasade Adigun.

It was also gathered that the Special Adviser to Saraki on legal matters, Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi has also resigned.

Another source in Saraki’s office, who also confirmed the mass sack, said majority of those affected were staff of the National Assembly, who has been on secondment for over a decade.
