Irukera, Okoh Only Step Aside, Not Dismissed- Presidency

By Lawal Merit Ifeoma

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in an effort to address and clarify media concerns, has responded to reports surrounding the alleged dismissal of key figures. Specifically, Babatunde Irukera, EVC/CEO of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), and Alexander Ayoola Okoh, Director-General/CEO of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), have not been dismissed, but rather, they have gracefully stepped back from their roles.

President Tinubu’s directive marks a strategic move in the pursuit of fresh leadership. Contrary to the misinterpretation in the media, the term “dismissal” does not accurately capture the essence of the President’s decision. Instead, it is a deliberate relief of duties as he actively engages in the search for competent successors to continue the vital work of these key positions.

In expressing his gratitude, President Tinubu acknowledges the invaluable contributions of Irukera and Okoh to the nation. As they transition, he extends heartfelt best wishes for their future endeavors, emphasizing the importance of their service to the country. This move underscores President Tinubu’s commitment to a smooth and purposeful succession, ensuring continuity and excellence in critical leadership roles.
