President Bola Tinubu has sacked the Managing Director of the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Plc (NSPM), Ahmed Halilu.

According to Premium Times, Halilu is the brother to former First Lady, Aisha Buhari, who was appointed to the position in September 2022 by ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.

Also affected by the removal directive are the company’s Executive Director, Corporate Services, Ado Danjuma; Executive Director, Operations (Lagos Factory) Chris Orewa; Executive Director, Security Documents, Tunji Kazeem and Company Secretary, Victoria Irabor.

Mrs Irabor is married to a former Chief of Defence Staff, Lucky Irabor, a retired general.

The Defence Headquarters, under Mr Irabor, in 2023 shielded former Governor of the Central Bank, Godwin Emefiele, from arrest by the State Security Services by deploying troops to secure his home and workplace.

In the interim, Abubakar Minjibir, the organisation’s executive director of operations (Abuja factory), has been asked to remain in office to act as managing director.

It is unclear why Mr Minjibir was spared.

A top official of the Central Bank confirmed the report, saying the affected officials were asked to leave with immediate effect.
