Nigeria’s senate president, Olubukola Saraki has sacked 98 of his personal assistants in a move to scale down his staff.
The sack letters were issued through the office of the Chief of staff, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed.
Following the mass sack, Saraki’s staff has reduced to a little over 200.
“The development which started last Wednesday is coming shortly after the senate president promised to stop collecting pension as former governor of Kwara state.
However, the special adviser on media to the senate president said he was not aware of the mass sack. “I am not aware of any sack. I am still at work,” he said.
