How many Buhari’s appointee Tinubu has sacked?

Nami was the latest appointee of former President Buhari that Tinubu would sack in less than four months after he resumed office.

Last week, President Tinubu sacked Lauretta Onochie, the immediate past chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and dissolved the governing board of the commissions.

While the sacking of Onochie and Nami was the latest in October, President Tinubu has sacked some big appointees of his predecessor, including the service chiefs.

President Tinubu also sacked the National Security adviser, the Inspection General of Police and Customs boss appointed by Buhari.
