Senate asks Buhari to rescind decision sacking Argungu as NDE DG

The Senate on Thursday, December 10, 2020, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to rescind the presidential directive, sacking Dr Nasiru Argungu, as the substantive Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment.

The resolution of the Senate followed a point of order raised on the floor by the Senator representing Jigawa East Senatorial District, Ibrahim Hadejia.

The Senate also urged Buhari to probe the frosty relationship between Argungu and the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Kayamo (SAN).

The red chamber argued that the removal of Argungu could delay the take-off of the Federal Government programme aimed at providing jobs for 774, 000 jobs.

Nelsdaily had reported that the presidency, last week announced the sacking of Lawan as DG, NDE.
