Breaking News: Jonathan sacks EFCC chairman, Farida Waziri

President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday sacked the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mrs. Farida Waziri.

Her sacking was contained in a statement by presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati. No reason was given for her removal.

The agency's Director of Operations, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, was directed to take over immediately.
Jonathan has been under pressure to remove Waziri over her perceived poor performance.

Incidentally, when she was appointed on May 18, 2008 by the late President Umaru Yar'Adua, she took over from Lamorde, who was appointed in an acting capacity after Mallam Nuhu Ribadu as EFCC chairman in controversial circumstances.
