The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) has debunked news making the rounds that President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the Postmaster General (PMG) of the Federation, Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi.
A statement by the agency’s director, corporate communications, Franklyn Alao said the service’s management’s attention was drawn to the trending report with the headline “Buhari Sacks Postmaster General” which alleged that the postmaster was sacked on Monday.
“NIPOST wishes to state that the purported news is false, reckless, mischievous and meant to mislead the public.
“NIPOST wishes to advise all stakeholders and the general public to disregard the malicious information.
“Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi is in office performing his official duties and working tirelessly to ensure the transformation of the agency and boost its quality of service, in line with best global practices.
“Since assuming office, NIPOST has witnessed Nobel ideas aimed at transforming its operations in line with the digital economy agenda of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
“Such malicious, fake news could only be the handiwork of those who do not wish the organisation well in its commitment towards contributing to the overall economic transformation of Mr. President,” the statement read in part.
