President Buhari reportedly sacked NiMET DG, Prof Sani Mashi over alleged fraud 

Federal Government may have sacked the Director General of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) Professor Sani Mashi over allegations of fraud, embezzlement and violating public service rules among other things, a source has told our source.

However, in a text response to our source asking about his removal, Professor Mashi wrote,” I am not aware of this information. Thank You.”

The removal which is said to have happened last Thursday by the Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika was the crescendo of the Director General’s over six months visit to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for corruption investigation among other things.

Professor Mashi was reported to have been visiting the EFCC every Friday in the last six (6) months.

It was gathered that one Muktar Sirika, allegedly related to the Minister of Aviation, was among a group that wrote a petition to the EFCC that eventually nailed the DG at the anti-graft agency.

According to allegations against the DG, he was alleged to have diverted Covid-19 funds approved for NiMET, depleted of the Internally Generated Revenues (IGRs) of the agency and award of inflated contracts to the tune of N30 million and above without due approval.

It was also learnt that the Minister, Sirika has already penciled down two candidates to fill up the position of Mashi in acting capacity: one Prof. Mataju, a General Manager, NiMET and another Professor from Katsina.

As at the time of filing this report, there was no official word from NiMET or the Ministry of Aviation.
