President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly removed Hadiza Usman as the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

Buhari has also instructed Mohammed Bello-Koko, the Executive Director, Finance and Administration, to assume the position.

Bello-Koko was born on March 25, 1969 and is a native of Koko-Besse Local Government Area of Kebbi State.

The development has been linked to the alleged face-off between Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, and Kaduna Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

The two stalwarts of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are at loggerheads over the 2023 presidency.

A source close to the government said he was not surprised that the Usman’s removal was linked to the Amaechi – El-Rufai feud.

Usman was one of the co-conveners of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG), the campaign launched after hundreds of schoolgirls were kidnapped in Chibok in Borno State.

El-Rufai appointed the embattled NPA boss in 2015 as his Chief of Staff. In July 2016, Buhari appointed her as NPA MD, after her nomination by the governor.
