President Muhammadu Buhari has removed Mrs Sally Mbanefo as Director General of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC).

Mrs Mbanefo was among the DGs inherited by Mr Buhari from the immediate past president, Mr Goodluck Jonathan.

Her removal was approved by the President in a letter signed by Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir David Lawal.

The letter dated Sunday, November 27, 2016, was titled ‘Notification of de-secondment from the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC).’

Mrs Mbanefo was advised to handover to the next most senior officer in the agency on or before Wednesday, November 30, 2016 (today).

“I refer to the attached letter, Ref. No. SGF.6/S.23/1/568 of 8th October, 2013 in respect of your secondment from the Keystone Bank Limited to serve as Executive Director/ Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) for a period of two years with effect from 6th May 2013.

“You may note from the foregoing that the period of your secondment at the corporation had since lapsed on 5th May 2016.

“Consequently, you are to handover the affairs of the corporation to the most senior officer on or before Wednesday, 30th November, 2016,” the letter read.
