Buhari Sacks NASENI Vice-Chairman Hours After Contract Extension

The executive vice-chairman of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Mohammed Sani Haruna, has been fired by President Muhammadu Buhari, after the president had given him a two-year contract extension.

This was released in a statement on Tuesday by the office of the secretary to the government of the federation.

Haruna has been instructed to hand over to the NASENI officer with the highest rank, according to the statement that was signed by Willie Bassey, director of information.

The statement said his removal followed the realisation that he had completed the required term in office.

“This follows the reversal of the extension in office granted by the President from 2nd April, 2023 to 2nd of April, 2025 due to the fact that the EVC had completed two tenures of five years each in the organization.

Professor Haruna was appreciated for the contribution in the development of the engineering infrastructure sub-sector of the economy.
