 Information reaching us confirmed that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has dissolved the Governing Board of the National Business and Technical Examinations Board - NABTEB after it went rougue and suspended four chiefs and registrar over N49m contracts purportedly unaccounted for.

According to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono, during a briefing on Monday disclosed that the suspension of the enlistment center and four chiefs in the organization by the overseeing board did not “take after the due procedure.”

Echono said the President had coordinated the Minister of Education, Adamu, to take “prompt measures to reposition and refocus NABTEB for more prominent productivity.”

Echono stated, “President Muhammadu Buhari has affirmed the disintegration of the Governing Board of NABTEB with prompt impact. He has likewise guided the Minister of Education to take prompt measures to reposition and refocus NABTEB for more prominent productivity and to render its execution more receptive to the desires for the present organization.

“The suspension of the recorder and four chiefs of NABTEB has been invalidated as it didn’t accommodate with due process in light of the fact that the board went past its forces and in repudiation of Sections 5 and 6 of the NABTEB Act.”

With this development we hereby inform the public that whatever the dissolved governing board has carried out since its inauguration are hereby declared null and void.
