SGF, others yet to comply with Buhari’s directive to reinstate NDPHC GM

More than  two months after an approval  for her reinstatement by President Muhammadu Buhari, a former General Manager with Niger Delta Power Holding Company Nigeria Limited (NDPHC) Mrs. Maryam Danna Mohammed is still awaiting a letter from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir Lawal.

The female General Manager was erroneously sacked with the Managing Director and Executive Directors of NDPHC on June 10, 2016 via a letter by the SGF.

Out of the 13 General Managers in the agency, who are not management staff, she was the only one singled out for disengagement.

But following a June 28, 2016 letter of appeal,  the President asked the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mallam Abubakar Malami (SAN), to look into the case, the NDPHC Act and give a legal opinion.

The AGF discovered that the disengagement of Mrs. Danna Mohammed was in error.

The President thereafter approved the reinstatement of the female GM, who was included on the sack list for “being a strict auditor”.

The AGF ‘s letter to the SGF said in part: “Please refer to your letter, reference No. SH/COS/03/1/A/15 and our response ref. No. MJ/DSD/SH/22/Vol.1/38 dated September 7 on the above subject matter.

“In this connection, I wish to convey to you Mr. President’s approval vide a meeting with the AGF and Minister of Justice on October 12, 2016 for the reinstatement of the staff (petitioner), Mrs. Maryam Danna Mohammed. Please accept the assurances of my highest esteem.”

The reinstatement letter was sent to the Chief of Staff to the President and the SGF.

Although it was alleged that the new management of NDPHC received the letter, it could not be immediately confirmed at press time.

Findings, however, confirmed that the sacked GM was still left stranded despite the presidential directive.
