PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan Friday sacked two Presidential Advisers, Senator Joy Emordi (National Assembly) and Dr. Tunji Olagunju (New Partnership for African Development, NEPAD).

No official reason was given for the sack, but a statement from the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said the President thanked them for their services and wished them success in their future endeavours.

This comes barely two weeks after the President sacked nine ministers from his cabinet.

She said, 'It was an honour and rare privilege to serve Mr. President and my nation in the capacity I served. I am also grateful to God and my family for the support they gave me throughout the period.'

Emordi equally said she would continue to work towards the growth and progress of Nigeria and urged Nigerians to continue to support Mr. President's transformation agenda.
