President Muhammadu Buhari may have sacked Senator Ita Enang as his Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate) going by the turn of events on Monday.
The Akwa Ibom State ex-lawmaker was one of the several presidential aides who had held on in office even at the expiration of the first term of the current administration without renewal of appointments.
A source close to the Presidency told PREMIUM TIMES that President Buhari has dropped Mr Enang as his aide on National Assembly Matters.
The president has reportedly picked Omoworare Babajide, a former senator from Osun state, as Mr Enang’s replacement, the source said.
The belief in the Presidency is that Mr Enang did not perform well in managing the relationship between President Buhari and senators in the eighth Senate, despite being a former senator himself
Contacted for comments, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Malam Garba Shehu, said the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, was in a better position to speak on the matter.
