Federal Government have reportedly have sacked the Director General of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) Professor Sani Mashi over allegations of fraud, embezzlement and violating public service rules among other things as reported by Katsina Post.
However, in a text response to a source asking about his removal, Professor Mashi wrote,” I am not aware of this information. Thank You.”
The removal which is said to have happened last Thursday by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika was the crescendo of the Director General’s over six months visit to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for corruption investigation among other things.
The Incoming Director General is also from Katsina state, Professor Mansur Bako Matazu who confirmed his appointment to Daily Episode Correspondent in a phone call, thanking the almighty Allah for this great opportunity.
