President Muhammadu Buhari has come under attack over the sack of the Registrar, National Examination Council, NECO, Prof. Charles Uwakwe.
It is reported that Ex 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.
Mr Abubakar Gana was immediately appointed as the acting Registrar.
This did not go down well with some Nigerians who took to their Twitter pages, accusing the President of practicing nepotism.
They lamented that the replacement of the registrar with a Northerner is pure nepotism and injustice.
This are some reactions from people about the dismissal of the registrar and who is appointed as his replacement.
@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.”
@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. “
