Buhari sacks NECO registrar, Uwakwe, four others Featured

President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the termination of the appointment of Prof Charles Uwakwe as the Registrar and Chief Executive of the National Examinations Council.

The President’s directive was conveyed in a letter, dated May 11 and signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono, on behalf of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

 

President Buhari also dismissed four members of the Management for various offences bordering on financial impropriety.

 

Mr Abubakar Gana had been appointed as the acting Registrar of the agency since 2018 when Uwakwe was suspended.

 

In the letter, Uwakwe was accused of violating the Public Procurement Act (2007) and pursuant to PSR 030402 and Part 1 schedule 4 (i) of NECO Establishment Act.

 

Uwakwe had been suspended since May 2018 by the Fedeal Ministry of Education, the parent ministry of the agency over alleged financial mismanagement and abuse of office.

It was alleged that Uwakwe and some top officials of the council allegedly awarded contracts in the council to the tune of N25billion without following due process.

 

NECO, in a release on Wednesday by its Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Mr. Azeez Sani, confirmed that the suspended registrar had been relieved of his appointment by the President, while four members of the management had also been dismissed.

 

The letter said: “After due consideration of the investigative panel on the allegation of unsatisfactory conduct levelled against you and some management staff of the council, Mr. President in exercise of his powers, has approved your removal as the Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of National Examinations Council with effect from the date of your suspension from duty.”

 

The former Registrar was also directed to hand over all the government property in his custody to the acting Registrar, Mr. Gana.

 

In another letter, FME/S/1419/C.3/T/98, on May 11, by the Permanent Secretary, the President approved the dismissal from service of four  Management workers.
