President Jonathan Suspends Minister of Interior, Emmanuel Iheanacho


HUHU understands that Capt. Emmanuel Iheanacho, Minister of Interior has been suspended. A statement issued by Ima Niboro, Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity, said,

'President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has ordered the immediate suspension of Capt. Emmenuel Iheanacho as Minister of Interior and member of the Federal Executive Council'.

The presidential spokesman stated that Capt. Iheanacho has been directed to hand over to the Minister of Labour, Mr. Emeka Wogu, who will, in addition to his present portfolio, oversee that ministry.

Niboro adjudged that Capt. Iheanacho's suspension comes as a result of a number of lapses in the political leadership of the ministry traceable to his personal and official conduct. For now, his continued manning of the ministry is not in the interest of the nation.
