Buhari suspends NPA MD, Hadiza Bala Usman over alledged financial misappropriation

The Managing Director of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usma has been suspended from office by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Her suspension was coming after four months of her reappointment to serve a second tenure of office.

But sources said she has relocated to Abuja following the suspension to battle it out for reinstatement.

Her suspension has since been on Tuesday, but was kept secret from the prying attention of Journalists until the information leaked on Thursday in Lagos.

She is reportedly frequenting the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, to see to how she could be reinstated, CAPITAL POST learnt late Thursday night. ‌

Meanwhile, Mohammed Bello-Koko, Executive Director Finance and Administration was asked by the presidency to take over in acting capacity.

Hadiza’s suspension, source said was connected with the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi’s directive to probe NPA over alledged financial improprieties.
