Buhari Extends Education Perm Sec, Shu’ara’s Tenure till 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari has further extended the tenure of embattled Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Education, Jamila Shu’ara, to 2018.

The extension of Shuára’s appointment, who retired from service last year, is in defiance of a resolution passed by the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education, asking the embattled official to refund all the emoluments she received in the past one year and return to her home with immediate effect.

To worsen matters for the woman, who did not appear before the committee when summoned, the tenure extension letter purportedly written by President Buhari, was not produced when requested by the lawmakers, thereby setting the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, and Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, who appeared on her behalf, on collision course with the legislators.

Neither the Chairman of the Education Committee in the House of Representatives, Zakari Mohammed, nor his deputy, Emeka Anuho, could be reached for comments on the latest memo written by the Presidency to the embattled retiree.
