According to Premium Times, the Presidency has fired Tahir Mamman, the Director General of the Nigerian Law School, and his 6 deputies while the Law schools are in mid-session.
There are six law schools in the country located in Lagos, Enugu, Kano, and recently Yenagoa – capital of president Goodluck Jonathan’s home state, Bayelsa – and Yola, capital of Adamawa state.
Deputy directors head the schools, and although the federal government offered no reasons for the sudden sack coming when the schools are in mid session, presidency sources in Abuja said it was based on the recommendation of the Nigeria’s Justice Minister, Mohammed Adoke. President Jonathan approved the sack late Thursday.
Mr. Mamman will keep his post till a replacement is announced for his job and those of his deputies. Unofficial sources in Mr. Adoke’s office said the recommendation was based on claims that Mr. Mamman had spent five years in office.
