Real Reason Why CCT Spokesperson Ibraheem Alhassan Was Removed

Real Reason Why CCT Spokesperson Ibraheem Alhassan Was RemovedThe Genius Media Nigeria reports that the spokesman for the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT,  Ibraheem Alhassan, has been replaced after releasing a statement filled with errors while defending the Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar.

Recall that Umar was caught in a video assaulting a security guard at the Banez Plaza in Abuja.

Alhassan who was condemned for the statement which was filled with grammatical errors noted that the statement was an unedited draft that had not received authorisation.

Reason Why CCT Spokesperson Alhassan Was Removed

The Chief Registrar of CCT, Abdumalik Shaibu, while confirming the recall of Alhassan to The Cabel by the Ministry of Information said a replacement has been sent to the tribunal.

“I got the news that he has been recalled but there is no official letter yet from the ministry.”

“I was told there is an official letter but we are still waiting for it. A replacement came in last Friday, and Ibrahim came to introduce him to us.”

“We are hoping an official letter will come this week so that the new person can resume fully.”

When asked if there is a fixed tenure for the position, Shaibu said he was unaware.

“It is like a routine posting. They can post and recall at any time. Ibrahim has spent about seven years with us,” he said.

“There is no fixed tenure. Or the ministry should know. We don’t know what the norm is in the ministry. We just see them.”

Shaibu also said he didn’t know the reason(s) given for Alhassan’s recall.

“Maybe if I see the letter which we are still expecting, the reasons might be stated,” he said.
