Psident Muhammadu Buhari has suspended Hadiza Bala Usman as the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).
The suspension was announced on Thursday, May 7 by the presidency. However, no reason was given for the suspension of Usman who was recently reappointed for another five-year.
The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi is expected to give details about her suspension but Nigerians are speculating that the NPA boss was suspended due to her tweet.
