The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Wase, on Tuesday said he sacked one of his legislative aides over alleged fraud.
This was made known by his Chief Press Secretary, Umar Puma, in a statement on Tuesday titled, ‘Wase replaces Legislative Aide.’
The Chief of Staff to the Deputy Speaker was quoted in the statement to have said Ahmed Tijjani Abubakar was been sacked in 2020 and did not resign his appointment as being reported in a section of the media.
The statement reads partly, “The attention of Chief of Staff to the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Dr Aminu Ibrahim Malle, has been drawn to a purported resignation of a former legislative aide to the Deputy Speaker by name Ahmed Tijjani Abubakar.
“For the avoidance of doubt and to keep the records straight, it is imperative to clarify that the person in question was relieved of his appointment since last year after he was discovered to be (allegedly) fraudulently using his position in the office to defraud ministries, departments and agencies.
“The Deputy Speaker, after receiving the complaints, was left with no choice than to relieve him of his appointment, and has since replaced him with Musa Rabo, whose appointment letter was appended and took effect from 8th December, 2020, against Ahmed’s belated letter of resignation dated 27th January 2021….Therefore, the reported voluntary resignation was a misrepresentation of what actually transpired.”
