The Presidency has clarified that the departure of the heads of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) and the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera and Alexander Ayoola Okoh, was not a dismissal but a relief from their positions.
Initially, there was confusion as Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president, described it as dismissals. However, Bayo Onanuga, special adviser on information and strategy to President Tinubu, later clarified on X (formerly Twitter) that their exit was considered a relief, as the president searches for their successors.
Onanuga conveyed President Tinubu’s gratitude to Okoh and Irukera for their services and wished them well in their future endeavors.
