The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has directed that the suspension of Mrs. Damilola Ogunbiyi from her role as Managing Director of Rural Electrification Agency, be reversed.
Ogunbiyi was earlier suspended by the Minister of Power, Sale Mamman.
President Buhari reversed the suspension of Mrs. Ogunbiyi, after the appointment of Ahmad Salihijo Ahmad as the new REA Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) ignited claims of Ahmad allegedly given the appointment due to family links and not because he was qualified.
“Her resignation effective December 31, 2019, has been accepted to enable her to take up her new United Nations appointment,” the presidency tweeted.
