President Muhammadu Buhari has fired Dr. Abdullahi Baffa, the Executive Secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) with immediate effect.

There was mild jubilation at the headquarters of the agency this morning in Abuja following the announcement.

He has been replaced with Prof. Suleiman Bogoro, a former Executive Secretary of the same agency.

Baffa was an aide to the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and no reason has been given for his removal.

He was appointed the head of TETFund alongside 14 other heads of parastatals in the education ministry on August 2, 2016.

According to reports, Baffa had been having a misunderstanding with Adamu Adamu, particularly as it concerns 2019 intervention.

He was said to have disregarded the Minister in virtually everything happening in TETFund, particularly in interventions to institutions.

This was in addition to his alleged deep and open involvement in political activities ahead of the forthcoming elections in Kano state.
