Buhari sacks NECO registrar, appoints Northern replacement – Nigerians react

President Muhammadu Buhari has come under attack over the sack of the Registrar, National Examination Council, NECO, Prof. Charles Uwakwe.

It was gathered that NECO registrar was sacked on Wednesday for fraudulent practices and suppression of official records.

Four other top management officials of the council were also dismissed after investigation.

Abubakar Gana was immediately appointed as the acting Registrar.

This did not go down well with some Nigerians who took their Twitter pages, accusing the President of practicing nepotism.

Also, they lamented the replacement of the registrar with a Northerner.

See some comments gathered on Twitter:

@Petre_mc “Mr president continues to systematically eliminate the southerners while replacing them with Northerners. Rwandans genocide na like this it started oh.”

@Faith “Yes another sack to replace them with the most Educated and wise people from the North. It’s not strange anymore.”

@Olatundeolaleye “Must every appointment go to a particular region.”

@Mr_temitope “Another Abubakar is the acting Registrar. Yes, the former registrar was sacked for corruption which is a grave offence and should be prosecuted but is there no incorruptible Nigerian from another region or tribe? Well those that support nepotism should enjoy it while it lasts.”

@Udehem2020 “The new chief of staff at work he is installing his boys in power so it will be easy for him to loot his own share of our resources. ”
