President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, ordered the Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Sani Haruna, to immediately hand over to the most senior officer in the organization.

The order followed the reversal of an approval for extension in office earlier granted Haruna, by the President.

President Buhari had earlier extended Sani Haruna’s tenure from April 2, 2023, to April 2, 2025, which would have allowed him to serve for three consecutive tenures of five years each.
