Bukola Saraki Sacks 98 Aides
Senate President Bukola Saraki has sacked his director of protocol, head of administration and 96 others to scale down the number of his aides.
This was made known by an aide of Mr. Saraki. Earlier in the year, the office of the senate president had conducted a staff audit in a bid to reduce the number of aides, which was about 300.
Arthur Ndiwe, Saraki’s director of protocol, and Folashade Adigun, head of administration, were among those laid off, the aide revealed.
The exercise is believed to be a way of cutting down cost. There are currently about 4,600 legislative aides at the national assembly.
