CSO Condemns Halima Shehu’s Suspension, Says it’s Unconstitutional

Condemnation and backlash have greeted the announcement of the suspension of the National Social Investment Programme Agency Boss, Halima Shehu.

The latest is coming from the Executive Director of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), Comrade Auwal Ibrahim Rafisanjani.
Mr. Rafisanjani who gave the charge on the trending report underscored the need to checkmate the excesses of Ministers overseeing Agencies and Parastatals.

Rafisanjani urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to follow due process in handling issues relating to the suspension or removal of public officers and political appointees confirmed by the Senate.

The suspended Shehu who was billed to handover starter packs to Victims of Kidney harvesting at New Karu Local Government Areas of Nasarawa State, was alleged suspended via a letter purportedly signed by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu.

As at the time of filing this report, the Presidency, Office of the Secretary to.the Government of the Federation (oSGF) and the Minister are yet to make any official statement to the alleged suspension of the NSIPA National Coordinator/CEO.
