A statement by Dr Reuben Abati, presidential spokesman said “President Goodluck Jonathan has relieved Mrs. Joy Emordi of her appointment as Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters with immediate effect.
“The President has similarly terminated the appointment of Dr. Tunji Olagunju as his Special Adviser on the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).
Abati said “President Jonathan thanks Mrs. Emordi and Dr. Olagunju for their services and wishes them success in their future endeavours.”
Though no reason was given for her sack, Emordi’s ouster came on the heels of the rumpus over a visit of G7 governors and the Kawu Baraje led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the national assembly this week.
There have been reports afterward of a plot to impeach the leaders of national assembly .
Emordi’s sack is certain to raise eyebrows within political circles.
