President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked his Presidential liaison officer, Nura Rimi.
Rimi was fired just five months after he was appointed into the post.
No reason was given for the president’s decision, which has also not been officially announced.

The sack may not be unconnected with the embarrassment Buhari suffered at the recently concluded United Nations General Assembly in the United States.

Rimi coordinated Buhari’s itinerary, entourage and facilitated most of the meetings that President Buhari attended in the sidelines of the UNGA.
But Buhari reportedly missed some key meetings due to misinformation by his team.
The feeling in the presidency is that Rimi failed to effectively communicate with the president’s team and must be punished.

Rimi, who served as President Goodluck Jonathan’s Chief Protocol Officer was posted to Nigeria Embassy in Abu Dhabi shortly before the presidential election.
He was recalled by Buhari, who appointed him as his PLO before his inauguration.

Rimi is a career civil servant who had served in Nigeria’s embassy in the US before he was posted to the presidential Villa as a Protocol officer where he served both former Presidents Umaru Yar’Adua and Jonathan.

For serious dereliction of duty he has to go. A Nigerian Official can not mis represent the Country, and expect to be compensated for it.
Everybody needs to do his job.

If any office holder isn't performing his job as expected, he should be shown the way to the door. And that's what PMB did
