Acting Postmaster General of the Federation, Mr. Enoch Ogun, has been sacked by the Nigerian government.
This follows the rift between the Minister of Communications, Mr. Adebayo Shittu, and the Nigerian Postal Service over the collection of stamp duty.
On Tuesday Ogun was summoned to the Ministry of Communications with his Deputy Postmaster General.
At the meeting which was presided over by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr. Sonny Echeno, Ogun was told that the minister had approved his retirement and had directed that he should hand over to the most senior officer in the organisation, Dr. Richard Balami.
Ogun had been in acting capacity since December 2015 when his tenure expired. Following the expiration of his tenure, the agency opened application for the post. He applied and it’s believed he could clinch the job.
