Jonathan fires all Nigerian Law School directors

The Nigerian government has fired the director general of the Nigerian Law School, Tahir Mamman, and his six deputies throwing the network of law schools into a mid session crisis.

There is a law school with headquarters in Abuja and campuses  in Lagos, Enugu, Kano, and recently Yenagoa – capital of president Goodluck Jonathan’s home state, Bayelsa – and Yola, capital of Adamawa state.

Deputy directors head the campuses, and although the federal government offered no reasons for the sudden sack coming when the school is in mid session, presidency sources in Abuja said it was based on the recommendation of the Nigeria’s Justice Minister, Mohammed Adoke. President Jonathan approved the sack late Thursday.

Mr. Mamman will keep his post till a replacement is announced for his job and those of his deputies. Unofficial sources in Mr. Adoke’s office said the recommendation was based on claims that Mr. Mamman had spent five years in office.

This story has been updated to reflect the correct term of office for heads of government institutions.
