FG suspends Adewusi, appoints new Postmaster General
The Federal Government has suspended the Postmaster-General of the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST), Ismail Adewusi.
Sources at the NIPOST and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy confirmed that Adewusi was suspended over issues around the contentious stamp duty and alleged financial misappropriations.
The sources also said Adewusi was in a superiority tussle with some members of the NIPOST board “and this contributed to his suspension too”.
Recall news of Adewusi’s sack had been debunked earlier by staff of the body.
The recent appointment of Barrister Bulus Samuila Yakubu as acting Postmaster-General of the Federation/CEO has confirmed Adewusi’s sack.
